Serve up a holiday classic this year with Sherry Gore's recipe for Sweet Potato Pie. This homemade pie recipe comes from her cookbook, "Me, Myself, and Pie," and we're pretty sure this pie recipe can make a sweet potato lover out of anyone.

What You'll Need

  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups cooked and mashed sweet potato
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (9-inch) unbaked pie crust
  • Dash ground nutmeg (optional)
  • Whipped cream (optional)

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, eggs, heavy cream, sweet potato, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, and salt; mix well. Pour into pie crust.
  3. Bake 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and continue baking 40 minutes. Be careful not to burn crust. Remove from oven and let cool. Refrigerate until ready to serve. When ready to serve, garnish with nutmeg and whipped cream, if desired.

Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

When you get a craving for fresh baked cookies, you have to do what you have to do. Luckily, here in the Test Kitchen, we can make cookies any time we want. Our go-to are these Oatmeal Cranberry cookies. Can you blame us? These sweet oats and tart cranberries are always a treat when washed down with ice cold milk. We wish you could smell the scent of cinnamon in the Test Kitchen, but making them in your home is just as tasty.
