Sweet potato pie with Bourbon & Pecans! We tried it! We all love a good pie for Thanksgiving and so I was happy to show Kiara how to make one. It did not turn out as well as I wanted so I decided to make it again and include some helpful tips in the video and below:
1. Lay out all your ingredients ahead of time.
2. If you want to cook the potatoes fast peel them first
and cut them in cubes before boiling.
3. Make sure you drain the potatoes of any water
4. Milk or cream makes the pie taste good but if you use
too much your pie will be too runny.
5. A pinch of salt will enhance the flavor when you add
6. Brown sugar is not as sweet as white sugar . It is best
to use both . Ideally one cup of each for two pies.
7. Pies should bake for at least ONE hour at 350- 365
depending on your oven.
8. Give yourself two hours to assemble ingredients, mix
9. If possible use an electric mixer for your ingredients.
10. Make your own pie shell or buy it raw and frozen
from your supermarket.
