Eggnog Sweet Potato Pie Recipe

Eggnog Sweet Potato Pie Recipe

Pies are therapy to me. This is one I make for special events and holiday celebrations. The eggnog and sweet potato make a soft filling that goes nicely with the crunchy topping. —Sarah Spaugh, Winston-Salem, North Carolina
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 55 min. + cooling YIELD:8 servings


  • 1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping
  • 1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)
  • 2 cups mashed sweet potatoes
  • 3/4 cup eggnog
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans


  • 1. Carefully spread caramel topping over bottom of pastry shell; set aside. In a small bowl, combine the sweet potatoes, eggnog, egg, butter and vanilla. Stir in the sugars and cinnamon. Carefully spoon over caramel layer.
  • 2. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; bake 30 minutes longer.
  • 3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the coconut, flour and brown sugar. Cut in butter until crumbly; stir in pecans. Sprinkle over pie.
  • 4. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean and topping is golden brown (cover edges with foil if necessary to prevent overbrowning). Cool on a wire rack. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 8 servings.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with commercially prepared eggnog.

"I left out the white sugar since the sweet potatoes themselves were so sweet, and everyone said it was wonderful."

"I have been making sweet potatoe pies every year for quite a few years now. I have my own recipe but was intrigued by the idea of using egg nogg rather than plain milk. So I had to try it! I must say, although I didn't follow the recipe to a tee, the results were absolutely on point and fabulous!! Best sweet potatoe pie I have ever eaten or made in my life, and I know a lot about soul is my changes for the best pie ever: 2C mashed red yams/sweet potatoes, 1 stick butter melted, 2eggs, 1T flour, 1/2C each of light brown sugar & white sugar, 1T nutmeg ( or more ), 1T cinnamon, 1 tsp vanilla, 3/4 C egg nogg. Blend as recipe says, pour into unbaked pie crust. Foil around the edges of crust and bake for one hour at 350. Done when knife inserted comes out clean!"
