Yummy Yam Pie Recipe

Yummy Yam Pie Recipes

Ingredients :

1/3 cup plus 1 tbsp Sucanat

5 tbsp cornstarch

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp ginger

1/4 tsp nutmeg

3/4 tsp salt

1 1/2 cups cooked, mashed yams

1 1/2 cups reduced fat coconut milk

1 cup pecans

2/3 cup whole wheat pastry flour

Method :

Preheat the oven to 350F. In a large bowl, stir together the 1/3 cup Sucanat, the cornstarch, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and 1/2 tsp of the salt. Blend in the mashed yams and the coconut milk.

Toast the pecans in the oven until they begin to brown, 10-15 minutes. Cool. Grind into fine pieces in a food processor, then mix in the flour, 1 tablespoon Sucanat, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add 2 tablespoons of water and mix thoroughly. The mixture should be just moist enough to hold together. Press into a 10 inch pie pan. Bake for 6 minutes, then pour in the yam filling. Return to the oven and bake until the filling is set, about 45 minutes. Cool before cutting.

Sweet potatoes or yams make a delicious pie, which most people will assume is pumpkin. Because the sweet potatoes are sweet, very little sugar is needed.

Serves 12 (Makes one 10 inch pie)
