Hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, hello We’ve returned with yet another pie. A delicious and buttery almond streusel tops a wonderfully spiced, silky smooth, and incredibly delectable sweet potato pie. IT’S AMAZING. I’d eat this for breakfast, lunch, supper, dessert, and a midnight snack, for example.

So, in case you hadn’t noticed, I’m a huge fan of sweet potato pie. My objective for today is to persuade you as well! When it comes to Thanksgiving, I know everyone is all about pumpkin pie, but we’re here to persuade you to prepare sweet potato pie instead.


What is the definition of sweet potato pie?

Sweet potato pie is a spicy sweet potato pie cooked with evaporated milk and sweet potato puree. It tastes a lot like pumpkin pie, but it’s a bit thicker and creamier, and it’s a little milder!


Don’t get me wrong: I’m not suggesting you shouldn’t eat pumpkin pie. Pumpkin pie is one of my favorite desserts. Kind of love when you lick the bowl clean and devour it before anybody else gets a piece.

But, guess what? I believe you can enjoy both pumpkin and sweet potato pies. There will be enough of pie to go around this Thanksgiving, so why not bake two equally creamy and delectable pies?


Sweet Potato Pie with Almond Streusel Recipe:

This pie is made in the same way as pumpkin pie, but using sweet potato puree instead of pumpkin.

  1. Make the crust: You can certainly use a purchased pie crust if you’re short on time, but if you want to go all out handmade, follow this step-by-step method to make our flaky homemade pie dough! 
  2. To make the filling, follow these steps: Simply combine the sweet potato puree, spices, and eggs in a mixing bowl until well combined. Then whisk in a can of evaporated milk well. Fill the pie shell halfway with the filling and bake for 40 minutes at 350°F, or until set.
  3. Make the almond streusel: Combine all of the ingredients for the almond streusel while the pie is baking! Remove the pie from the oven after 40 minutes and top with the almond crumble. Bake for another 15 minutes!
  4. Cool and serve: Unlike a warm gooey chocolate chip cookie, sweet potato pie has to cool fully before eating. So, before serving, chill the pie for 2 hours on a wire rack!


Help! I can’t use sweet potato puree since I don’t have any!

Do not be concerned. We’ve got you covered. Roast two to three sweet potatoes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Preheat the oven to 350°F and stab the sweet potatoes a few times with a fork to release any trapped heat, then bake for 45 minutes or until tender. Allow it cool entirely before pureeing in a blender or food processor until smooth. If your potatoes are overly thick, thin them out with a tablespoon or two of water! 

Sweet potato puree is frequently found beside the pumpkin puree at the grocery store!

  • 1 9-inch unbaked pie crust (homemade or store-bought!)
  • 2 cups sweet potato puree (15 ounces)
  • 2 room temperature eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar (brown)
  • a pinch of cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves, ground
  • a half teaspoon of salt
  • 1 litre of evaporated milk (12 oz.)

for the streusel topping

  • 4 tablespoons softened unsalted butter
  • a half cup of brown sugar
  • flour (1/2 cup)
  • a third of a cup of sliced almonds
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of ginger powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Whisk together the sweet potato puree, eggs, brown sugar, spices, and salt in a large mixing basin until smooth. Before opening the can of evaporated milk, give it a good shake and gently pour it into the sweet potato mixture while whisking. Mix until everything is well blended.
  3. Fill the pie shell with the sweet potato filling and bake for 35 minutes, or until set (the pie should not jiggle in the centre when jostled).
  4. Prepare the streusel topping while the pie is baking. When the pie is firm enough to support the weight of the streusel, top it with it. To prepare the streusel, put all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and chop everything together with a fork or pastry cutter until the dough begins to clump together and maintain its form.
  5. Remove the pie from the oven and top with streusel, spreading it to the edges. Return the pie to the oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until the streusel is a light golden brown. Before serving, remove the pan from the oven and let it cool fully.

Thanksgiving, autumn, fast and simple, easy, quick, the best
