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.
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.

make the crust with food-processed almonds. add a cup of yogurt for the condensed milk. splenda for sugar. I have tons of good recipes and substitutes if folks are interested, make post a bunch of them

I am very interested in the substitutes. I still havent tried making one of these. Will have to do it soon.

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.Originally Posted by bigpetefox
