From Betty's Soul Food Collection... Keeping the story short and sweet—this is an amazingly delicious pie. It begins with a crust topped with a cream cheese layer, a sweet potato layer, and finally a dollop of whipped cream.

Ingredients

Cream Cheese Layer

1
package (8 oz) cream cheese, not softened
1/4
cup granulated sugar
1
egg
1
teaspoon grated orange peel

Sweet Potato Layer

1
cup mashed cooked dark orange sweet potatoes (about 3/4 lb uncooked)
2/3
cup half-and-half
1/2
cup packed brown sugar
1
teaspoon grated orange peel
1/2
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4
teaspoon ground ginger
1/4
teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8
teaspoon salt
1
egg

Crust

1
Pillsbury™ Pet•Ritz® frozen deep dish pie crust (from 12-oz package)

Topping

1
cup whipping cream, whipped, sweetened

Directions

  • 1 Place cookie sheet on oven rack. Heat oven to 350°F. In small bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar on low speed until well blended. Add egg; beat well. Stir in orange peel. Set aside.
  • 2 In food processor, place sweet potatoes. Cover; process until smooth. In large bowl, beat sweet potato layer ingredients with wire whisk. Remove crust from freezer. Spread cream cheese mixture in frozen pie crust. Carefully spoon sweet potato mixture over cream cheese mixture.
  • 3 Bake on cookie sheet 50 to 60 minutes or until set and knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cool 30 minutes. Refrigerate until chilled, 3 to 4 hours.
  • 4 Serve pie with sweetened whipped cream. Cover and refrigerate any remaining pie.

Expert Tips

The cream cheese should not be softened. If the cream cheese mixture is too soft, it could bake into the sweet potato layer.
