Spiced Pumpkin and Sweet Potato Pie

This pie is so mouthwatering and it is perfect for the holidays. There might be more ingredients in the recipe than you would expect to see but this is well worth making because the flavor is so wonderful. The pumpkin and sweet potato combine to give you plenty of incredible flavor, while the coconut adds a subtle touch and the spices complement the sweet potato and pumpkin taste.

Make your own pastry crust if you wish but it is just as easy to use a readymade one. It is important that the pastry is chilled (fresh from the refrigerator) when you put the pie in the oven. This is so it does not get too dark during the long baking time. Depending on your oven the pie might be ready in 1¾ hours but it usually takes closer to 2 hours, so just keep an eye on it.

If you wish to make this ahead, you can make the sweet potatoes mixture up to 3 days ahead and keep it refrigerated. Keep the cooking liquid (reduced to ¼ cup as detailed in the recipe) too and then you can bring them to room temperature and continue with the recipe when you want. Another idea is to freeze the sweet potato mixture and the cooking liquid for up to 3 months, then you will be able to thaw them in the refrigerator overnight. Make 2 pies at a time if you are expecting lots of company. If you do this, use 3 whole eggs when doubling the ingredients to make the filling. Continue reading

This is the best ever pumpkin cream pie in terms of both flavor and easiness to make. The cream cheese and cream makes it creamy and luxurious and the puddings give it the perfect flavor. If you cannot find pumpkin pie spice, use a combination of cinnamon and ginger. A little nutmeg gives a nice flavor too but be careful when adding nutmeg or ginger because a little goes a long way. It is obviously easier to add more spice that to remove it when you have added too much!

This cream cheese pumpkin pie has a great consistency and it is nice served ice cold. It needs to be refrigerated for a few hours or overnight, to make sure it sets properly. If you want to make a single layered pumpkin cream cheese pie, mix the two mixtures together and spread the whole lot over the crust.
