Ingredients: Sweet Potato Praline Pie Recipe

  • Pastry for 1 (9”) single crust pie
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups sweet potatoes (mashed)
  • 1 (12 ounces) can evaporated milk
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp salt


3 tbsp brown sugar

3 tbsp light corn syrup

1 tbsp butter

½ tsp vanilla extract

1 (3 ounce) jar macadamia nuts (chopped)

½ cup heavy whipping cream (whipped)

Directions: Sweet Potato Praline Pie Recipe

  1. Line a 9” pie plate with the single crust pastry and trim to approximately ½“ beyond the edge of the pie plate. Flute the edges.
  2. In a bowl, combine the eggs along with the mashed sweet potatoes, milk, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla essence, ground ginger, ground nutmeg, and salt. Pour into the pastry.
  3. Bake in the oven at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes before reducing the heat to 350 degrees F and baking for an additional 25 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, for the topping: In a pan, bring the brown sugar, corn syrup, and butter to boil. Turn the heat down and uncovered, simmer for a couple of minutes.
  5. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vanilla essence.
  6. Sprinkle the macadamia nuts over the pie and drizzle with the caramel.
  7. Place a baking sheet lined with foil on the rack beneath the pie; this will help to catch any spillages.
  8. Bake the pie for an additional 10-15 minutes, until the caramel begins to bubble. You may need to cover the edges with aluminum foil. This will help prevent the crust from browning too quickly.
  9. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool on a wire baking rack.
