Bourbon Sweet Potato Pie

There is nothing I don't love about this pie! I adore the flavors, and I like that I can sneak some whole grains into the crust. It belongs on every holiday dessert buffet. —Mary Leverette, Columbia, South Carolina
  • Total Time
    Prep: 25 min. Bake: 40 min.
  • Makes
    8 servings


  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup self-rising flour
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes (about 8 ounces each)
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup self-rising flour
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon
  • Sweetened whipped cream


  • Preheat oven to 325°. Mix the first 4 ingredients. Firmly press 1-2/3 cups mixture onto bottom and up sides of a well-greased 9-in. pie plate. Bake until light golden brown, 6-8 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
  • Stir walnuts into remaining oat mixture. Reserve for topping.
  • For filling, pierce potatoes with a fork; microwave on high until very tender, 10-13 minutes, turning once halfway. Cool slightly.
  • Peel potatoes and place in a large bowl; mash until smooth. Beat in eggs, brown sugar, melted butter, flour and bourbon until well blended. Add to crust.
  • Sprinkle with topping. Bake until golden brown and filling is set, 30-35 minutes. Cool on a wire rack; serve or refrigerate within 2 hours. Serve with whipped cream.
Editor's Note
As a substitute for 1 cup of self-rising flour, place 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a measuring cup. Add all-purpose flour to measure 1 cup.
