  • 2 lbs sweet potatoes
  • 5 Tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 3 large eggs
  • ¾ cup heavy cream or half and half
  • 2 Tablespoons bourbon
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • Pinch of ground cloves
  • 1 unbaked pie crust 10", homemade or purchased


  • Peel and slice the sweet potatoes about ½ inch thick slices.
  • Dress the sweet potatoes very lightly with olive oil and roast in a 350°F degree oven until they are soft and begin to brown; 30 to 40 minutes.
  • Let them cool to room temperature.
  • When the sweet potatoes are cool, place them in a food processor and run for a minute or two until they are smooth.
  • Add the melted butter, eggs, bourbon and vanilla while the food processor is running.
  • Stop the food processor and scrape down the sides.
  • Add the sugars, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, ginger and cloves.
  • Run the processor until all ingredients are combined and the mixture is fluffy.
  • Preheat the oven to 450°F degrees.
  • Fill the pie crust of your choice with the mixture.
  • Bake at 450°F for 15 minutes then reduce the heat to 350 F and bake for about another 40 to 50 minutes. The pie is done when a sharp knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Let the pie cool to room temperature.
  • Serve with whipped cream or just plain for a tasty dessert.


You can do the first 8 steps ahead and refrigerate the filling for several days if you wish.
