Makes 8 servings

  • 1, 2-inch slice per serving
  • Prep time: 20 minutes
  • Cook time: 30 minutes

Crust

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons cold non-fat milk

Filling

  • 2 cups cooked or canned sweet potatoes
  • 1.5 cups apples
  • 4 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons non-fat milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ⅛ teaspoon allspice

Process

  • Place sweet potatoes and apples in a microwave safe container and cover.  Heat in microwave on high for 5 minutes or until apples are soft.  Remove apples and microwave potatoes on high, another 2 – 4 minutes, until soft.
  • [For a sweeter pie, roast sweet potatoes and apples at 425°F until soft]
  • Preheat oven to 375°F.  Lightly oil an 8” or 9” glass pie dish with cooking oil or nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, mix flour and salt with wire whisk. Stir in oil until mixed. Add milk until mixed completely.
  • Place dough into middle of prepared glass pie plate. Spread dough out with hands covering the bottom of the plate and up the sides.  Bake for 10 minutes and remove to cool.
  • While crust is cooking, combine cooked sweet potatoes, apples, eggs, milk, vanilla, sugar, and spices.  Place in a blender container or food processor and blend until smooth.
  • Pour mixture into baked crust once cooled.  Bake for 25 – 30 minutes or until center is set.  Check pie halfway through cooking.  If crust is becoming too brown, cover edges with foil.
  • Cool before cutting.  Serve immediately, and store leftover pie in the refrigerator.

Tip

  • No time to bake the apples and potatoes?  This filling can be prepared even quicker by using canned sweet potato or pumpkin filling, and applesauce.
