1/3 cup almonds, toasted
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
5 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted

18 oz sweet potatoes
3 eggs
3 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp honey
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup whipping cream

2. make the filling: preheat oven to 350 F. bake sweet potatoes until tender, about 1 hour. cool potatoes; peel and puree in processor. transfer to bowl and whisk in eggs. cook butter in heavy medium skillet over medium heat until melted and brown. add sugar, honey and pumpkin pie spice and boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. whisk in cream. add butter mixture to potato puree; blend until smooth.

3. pour filling into crust. bake at 350 F until center moves only slightly when pan is shaken, covering with foil if crust browns too quickly, about 40 minutes.

4. meanwhile, make the topping: stir first 3 ingredients in heavy medium saucepan over low heat until sugar dissolves. increase heat and boil 1 minute. mix in nuts, coating completely.

5. take the pie out of the oven, spoon on the hot nut mixture if you’ve made it, and continue baking until topping bubbles, about 5 minutes. transfer to rack and cool completely.

  1. Jane says:

    Your pie looks delicious. I have a preference for pecans and have a 5 lb bag in my freezer from a friend’s pecan trees, so I will use those in lieu of the nut mixture in your recipe. This year, I made a Southwestern turkey soup with my turkey carcass (poured in 1/4 of a jar of hot salsa into it, used pinto and black beans, corn and rice)and it was an excellent departure from the traditional turkey soup. And I found a recipe for a yeast bread that will use my leftover mashed potatoes (wonder if I could also throw in some leftover stuffing?) How was your Thanksgiving, Pete?
