lazy baker…


i don’t like to cook and i definitely don’t like to bake.  too much work, too messy.  but i can make sweet potato pie, pretty much the only thing i can make that comes out good each time.

it’s easy. i even add decorations on top that’s super easy.  this is why i’m the lazy baker- the thought of kneading dough with butter, rolling it out, etc. etc. pains me.  so why bother? i just cut decorations out of another pie crust!


my recipe:

2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed

2 eggs

1/2 cup of milk, i use skim

3 Tbs of butter

1/2 cup of brown sugar

1/2 tsp of vanilla extract

1 tsp of cinnamon

1/2 tsp of nutmeg

sprinkle of ground ginger

2 ready made pie crusts, found in your grocer’s freezer section

1. preheat over to 400 degrees

2. boil the potatoes for 10 minutes until soft

3. mash potatoes in a food processor, you can use an immersion blender, blender, or your fork even.  use a spatula to scrape the sides to make sure you get everything

4. add in this order: butter, sugar, milk, eggs, and seasonings

5. pour your mixture into your pie crust pan.  don’t overfill.  you can always pour the rest into a shallow oven-safe bowl for a single serve pie

6. want to decorate? i just used kitchen utensils and cut decorations out of the second pie crust: piping tip for circles and knife to cut the heart out.  so easy.

7. bake your pie(s) for 40-50 minutes, checking periodically towards the end so as not to burn your yummy crust.

serve as is warm out of the over, or with whipped cream, ice cream, chocolate, sprinkles….anything sweet!
