Sweet Potato Pie
1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into pieces
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup sugar
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
9-inch basic flaky piecrust, unbaked
confectioners’ sugar, for dusting
1Preheat oven to 350° F. Steam the potatoes in a steamer basket in a large saucepan until tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
2 In a food processor, puree sweet potatoes with heavy cream, sugar, butter, eggs, cinnamon, and salt until smooth.
3 Pour the mixture into the piecrust and bake until the center is set but still slightly wobbly, 40 to 50 minutes. Let cool.
4 Dust with confectioners’ sugar before serving.
