Hi N – I used your berry honey muffins as our Rosh Hashanah honey cakes. And now I’m trying to cobble together a sweet potato pie for Thanksgiving. I have my gluten free crust from WF and I am lactose free as well. So this is what I’ve put together but haven’t tested it yet because I wanted to see what you thought on first pass – yes it has a lot of sugar, I realize that but not having made it and having had nothing but sweet sweet potato pies here in New Orleans I wasn’t sure if I could sidestep that fact. I like the meringue at the end because I always love this pie with a little bit of whipped cream but given the lactose issue this sort of satisfies that by sidestepping it.
Gluten Free – Lactose Free – Sweet Potato Pie
2 cups cooked, mashed sweet potato
1 cup sugar
2 Tbs coconut oil
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp cinnamon

3 egg whites
¼ cup granulated sugar
Preheat oven to 350F
Scrub potatoes and dice and boil in lightly salted water for 20 minutes
Drain and whip potatoes until smooth
Mix together potatoes, 1 cup sugar, coconut oil, eggs, vanilla, salt, cinnamon, ginger in large mixing bowl

Beauty. Though I always crave baked goods after logging onto your site!
