Ingredients

  • Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping, warmed
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup mashed sweet potato
  • 1 cup apple butter
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar

Directions

  • Line a 9-in. pie plate with pastry; trim and flute edges. Sprinkle with walnuts and drizzle with ice cream topping. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, sweet potato, apple butter, brown sugar, milk, vanilla, salt and spices until blended. Pour into pastry.
  • Bake at 400° for 50-55 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cover edges with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Cool on a wire rack.

    Excellent pie! Used pecans instead of walnuts, and it came out delicious!

    I made this pie last night and it is EXCELLENT! Light and fluffy and the spices are just right! Unusual twist with the caramel and walnuts on the bottom. I would increase the walnuts to 3/4 cup.
