Pecan Crunch Bourbon Sweet Potato Pie

Bourbon, especially wheated bourbon, pairs particularly well with brown sugar and pecans. Save the Pappy Van Winkle for drinking for cooking and baking, use Maker’s Mark, Redemption Wheated Bourbon or Heaven Hill Larceny. If you don’t want to use bourbon, you can substitute one part vanilla extract plus two parts water for each tablespoon of bourbon in this recipe.


2 pounds sweet potatoes (about 5 small to medium

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

½ teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

¼ cup packed dark brown sugar

1 9-inch pie crust, partially baked


Wrap sweet potatoes in aluminum foil and bake them until completely cooked through. (Cooking time will vary depending on the size of the sweet potatoes, but it will take from 30 to 60 minutes.)

Remove cooked sweet potatoes from oven and cool for 10 minutes. Halve each potato crosswise, then insert small spoon between skin and flesh, and scoop flesh into medium bowl discard skin. Repeat with remaining sweet potatoes you should have about 2 cups of flesh after removing skin. While potatoes are still hot, add butter and mash with fork or wooden spoon small lumps of potato should remain.

Whisk together eggs, yolks, sugar, nutmeg and salt in medium bowl stir in bourbon, molasses and vanilla, then whisk in milk. Gradually add egg mixture to sweet potatoes, whisking gently to combine.

Heat partially baked pie crust in oven until warm, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle bottom of pie shell evenly with brown sugar. Pour sweet potato mixture into pie shell over brown sugar layer. Bake for 15 minutes more.

Meanwhile, toss chopped pecans with cane syrup until evenly coated set aside.

Lower temperature to 350F, spread the pecan and cane syrup topping over the top of the pie, then return pie to the oven and continue baking until filling is set around edges but center jiggles slightly when shaken, about 40 minutes.

Transfer pie to wire rack cool to room temperature, about 2 hours, and serve.

By Cathy Fisher
This pie is perfect for holidays and special occasions, and you can easily make a pumpkin or yam pie from this same recipe (see Notes).



1 Grind the rolled oats into flour with a blender and then transfer to a small bowl.

2 Place the nondairy milk, dates, and vanilla into the blender, and set aside for at least 15 minutes (so the dates can soften). Preheat the oven to 375F. Set aside your pre-baked pie crust.

3 Add the baked sweet potato to the blender with the milk, dates and vanilla, and blend until smooth. Add the oat flour, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves to the blender mixture, and blend until smooth, scraping down the sides a couple times. (This will be thick, so use your blender’s tamper if it has one, or you can also use a food processor.)

4 Pour the pie filling into the pre-baked pie crust and smooth out evenly. Arrange the pecan halves around the outside of the pie and the chopped pecans in the middle.

5 Use a silicon pie crust shield to prevent the crust from over-browning.

6 Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the crust is a medium brown. Remove the pie from the oven and remove the foil strips. Cool completely before slicing.

NOTES: To bake the sweet potato, place the unpeeled potato on a baking sheet, and bake at 400F for 60 to 70 minutes, or until very soft when pierced with a knife.

7 To make this a pumpkin pie, substitute 1 can (15 ounces) 100% cooked pumpkin (not “pumpkin pie mix”) or 1 1/2 cups (packed) baked pumpkin.

8 To make this a yam pie, substitute 1 1/2 cups (packed) baked yams. Yam pie will be darker in color than sweet potato pie.

9 Pecan-Date Pie Crust: This crust tastes like a sweet, crumbly cookie. I use it with the Sweet Potato-Pecan Pie recipe above, but you can use it wherever a sweet, pre-baked pie shell is called for.

10 Prep: about 25 minutes Cook: 10 minutes Makes 1 eight-inch pie crust

11 Place the oats, pecans, and cinnamon in a food processor, and process until the texture resembles coarse flour. Add the dates, and process for about 1 minute, or until the mixture just begins to clump together. Add the milk and process until the mixture starts to ball up into dough (this will happen quickly).

12 Form the dough into one big ball and place it on a large piece of parchment paper on top of a large cutting board or other flat surface. Press the ball flat with your hands and then place another large piece of parchment paper over the top. Preheat the oven to 375F. Set aside an 8-inch pie pan.

13 Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough into a circle that is about 1/8-inch thick. The circle should be slightly larger than the upper edge of the pie pan. (If your circle is irregularly shaped, just cut a piece of dough from another area and press it in.)

14 Peel off the top piece of parchment paper and carefully invert the rolled-out crust onto the pie pan. Peel away the remaining piece of parchment paper. Gently ease the crust into the contours of the pan and gently press into place.

15 Trim away any hanging crust. (You do not need to poke the crust with a knife.) Place a piece of parchment over the entire crust, loosely tucking under the corners. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes, or until the edges are very lightly browned.

Buttermilk Pie

  • 1/4 pound butter
  • 1 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 fresh eggs
  • 3 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Add remaining ingredients and mix until a homogenous mixture is obtained (less than 2 minutes). Pour into a pie shell. Bake in 300 degree oven for 55 minutes. Should be done when a toothpick placed in the center comes out clean. Makes – 1 pie

Ingredients to make this Southern Sweet Potato Pie recipe

For the crust

  • All-purpose flour &ndash Used as the base for the pie crust.
  • Granulated sugar &ndash Divided.
  • Salt &ndash Just a pinch to bring out the flavor.
  • Butter- because crusts need that for the best texture! (unsalted)
  • Vegetable shortening &ndash I use Crisco.
  • Ice-cold water &ndash Literally keep a bowl of water with ice in it! It&rsquos what will help get you a nice flaky crust.

For the filling

  • Mashed sweet potato &ndash Can use either canned or fresh.
  • Evaporated milk &ndash Not to be confused with sweetened condensed milk. It is similar, however, it is NOT sweetened.
  • Light brown sugar &ndash Packed tightly.
  • Large eggs &ndash You&rsquoll need 2 for this recipe, lightly beaten.
  • Light corn syrup &ndash Has a lighter, more subtle flavor than its dark counterpart.
  • Butter &ndash Melted.
  • Extracts &ndash Both almond extract and vanilla extract.
  • Salt &ndash Used to bring out the flavors of all of the other ingredients.
  • Spices &ndash Ground ginger, Ground Cinnamon, Ground nutmeg.
  • Chopped pecans &ndash Coarsely chopped.

Sprinkle the pie with the topping and return it to the oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes longer or until a knife inserted in the center of the pie comes out clean.

Recipe Summary

  • 2 to 3 sweet potatoes (1 1/2 pounds), peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks

Cook, stirring, until sugar is incorporated and the mixture is smooth, about 3 minutes. Stir in remaining tablespoon cream let cool 1 to 2 minutes. Pour mixture over cooled pie.
