    Sweet Potato Pie??


    Has anybody tried making a sweet potato pie with a whole wheat crust? Seems like it would be a pretty good carb source and taste awesome. Splenda and cinnamon could be used for sweetening. All of the recipes I have seen use butter so maybe some "I cant believe its not butter." Sound like a good idea?

    Made the sweet potato pie with splenda instead of sugar... Was great. Just like sweat potato pie without the sugar.

    -recipe
    6 sweet potatoes (baked)
    2.5 cups of splenda
    1 can evap milk-Lg.
    4 egg whites
    1 Tbles. Cinn
    1 Tbles. Van
    1 Tbles. Nutmeg
    1 stick of Marg(Could someone inform me of a better source of butter?)
    -shave the potatoes and blend it all together real good.

    Anyways i did this to make a good bit of sweet potatoe mix. It's great. Like eating desert but not really.

    I make sweet potato pies quite regularly, the wife loves them!

    Hell, I eat 'em while dieting since I don't use much sweetening.. I'm abit old-school when baking anything: I never measure, I always substitute bad stuff for better stuff, I don't time it while it bakes.. Yet, my food comes out amazing..

    I made a pie just yesterday, 6 sweet potatos can make 3 pies so you must be using a big-ass pie dish or very small potatos.. I use 2 per pie, boil them first to soften them for the blending.. While bulking I use sweet canned milk, cutting I use almond milk.. Add some nutmeg, cinnamon, blend till smooth, pour into crust.. I bake it between 30-45mins, testing by poking a fork into the center..

    Yea.. its just the recipe i had and didn't feel like dividing everything up. I just freeze whatever pie mix i don't use in ziplock bags and use later.
