Sweet Potato Pie
Sweet Potato Pie
Method
  • Preheat the oven to 160* C (320* F) Fan.
  • Prepare the sweet tart dough.
  • Roll it out and fit nicely on to the bottom and sides of a 26 cm pie dish. If any of the dough is hanging off the edges of the dish, fold them over and stick them to the sides.
  • Use a fork to poke small holes on the bottom of the dough.
  • Cover with plastic wrap, making sure it directly touches the dough. Add cooking weights (or beans) and cover with plastic wrap again.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, remove the weights and bake for another 10 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from oven and set aside to cool a little before adding the filling.
  • Peel the sweet potatoes and chop them in to small pieces.
  • Season them with salt and add them to a pot full of boiling water.
  • Boil for 20 minutes or until they soften completely.
  • When ready, remove from pot and transfer to a clean kitchen towel.
  • Squeeze them in the towel to remove excess moisture. Be careful not to burn yourselves.
  • Puree them in a blender.
  • Transfer to a bowl and add the sugar and eggs. Whisk until the mixture is completely combined and smooth.
  • Add the heavy cream and vanilla extract. Stir until the mixture thickens.
  • Add the ginger, cinnamon, cloves and pepper. Stir one last time to combine and spread in to the cooled pie shell. Add the coarsely chopped chocolate over the top.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes.
