Sweet potato pie with a citrus maramalade glaze

 I can still remember how we savored every little morsel of this pie. I made it for our Christmas Eve dinner, and it just added to the amazing spread of food we all made; Smoked gammon, potato bake, roast chicken with sides and stuffing, broccoli and bacon salad... the list can go on and on (: 


I made a pie crust, which proved to be great. BUT to be honest its such a mission to make it from scratch, so will buy one next time. However, if you feel like giving homemade pastry a try have a look here for an easy pie crust.

You need to 'pie' 

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup almond milk/ normal milk
  • 2 cups of cooked and mashed sweet potatoes / pumpkin. Must be cooled down.
  • juice of one orange, squeezed out
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of ginger

It's as easy as pie (:

  1. Set oven temperature at 180'
  2. Cream the butter, sugar, honey and peanut butter together
  3. Mix the mashed pumpkin and eggs together with the milk and orange juice.
  4. Add the pumpkin mixture to the butter mixture
  5. Sift the flour, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger together.
  6. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix. 
  7. Pour into a pie crust, and bake for 40-45 minutes until firm. 
  8. Allow to cool down and serve with cream cheese / whipped cream .
