I love to cook and try new foods and recipes. I try to do my best to incorporate healthy foods, but sometimes I need a little comfort food.

Easy Chunky Apple Sweet Potato Pie

I was looking for a way to used seasonal fruits and or vegetables and I came up with the combination of apples and sweet potatoes. What could be more befitting Autumn than a chunky apple sweet potato pie?

In all honesty, it turns out more like a cobbler than a pie -- or something halfway in between. There are no thickeners in the filling, hence it is more scooped out than sliced out.

The apple sweet potato pie smells delicious as you mix it up with spices and orange marmalade. As the pie is baking it fills the house with that orange cinnamon aroma. It makes you hungry with anticipation just smelling it. The whole house smells like the holidays.

Step One ---Cut Up Sweet Potatoes and Apples, Add Craisins

Cut the cooked sweet potatoes into 1 inch by 1/2 in pieces.

Cut the apples into quarters; take out the core and then cut 1/4 inch thick slices .

Place in a large mixing bowl. Add Craisins (dried cranberries)

Marmalade, Salt, Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Lemon Juice - This smells heavenly

Put marmalade in a small bowl, add spices, and lemon juice and mix.

Inhale the fragrance of spices.

Add the Marmalade Mixture to the Apples and Sweet Potatoes

Add the marmalade mixture to the apple-sweet potato-craisins mixture.

Stir gently so as not to mash sweet potatoes.

Try to cover every surface of the apples and sweet potatoes by gently separating any slices that are stuck together.

Pour the Mixture Into the Uncooked Shell

Crimp Aluminum Foil Over the Edges Of the Pie Crust

Put aluminum foil around the edge of the crust to keep it from getting too burnt.

I did it because I couldn't find my pie crust shield.

Take Out Of Oven - Inhale ...The Orange-Apple-Cinnamon-Spice-Aroma

Ounce to Gram Conversion

The pie shown in the photos was made in a 9-1/2 pie pan. If you make it in a larger pan, the filling will be flatter.

I use a ready made pie crust, but you may use any pie crust recipe of your choosing. I would recommend that you not use a graham cracker crust as the sweetness of it will not really go with the tart spicy flavor of the filling.

Chilling the sweet potatoes makes them easier to cut and hold their shape.


Cook time: 2 hours
Ready in: 2 hours
Yields: 6 to 8

Ingredients

  • pie crust
  • 2 medium size sweet potatoes
  • cooked to medium firm and chilled.
  • 2 medium size medium sweet
  • medium firm apples (I use Gala)
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries (Craisins)
  • 1 cup marmalade
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional).

Instructions

  1. Cut the cooked sweet potatoes into 1 inch by 1/2 in pieces. Cut the apples into quarters, core, and then cut 1/4 inch thick slices. Place in a large mixing bowl. Add Craisins (dried cranberries).
  2. In a small mixing bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients -- except the walnuts. Stir until all ingredients are evenly distributed.
  3. Pour the marmalade mixture over the apple sweet potato mixture and stir gently. Try to get some of the marmalade mixture on every surface of the apples and sweet potatoes, but gently separately the slices.
  4. Pour the mixture into and unbaked pie shell. Place aluminum foil or pie crust shield around the perimeter of the pie crust to keep from burning. Bake at 450 degrees for 40 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and sprinkle chooped walnuts on top. Let cool for at least 15 minutes, before serving.
  6. Serving suggestion: Whipped topping or whipped cream, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
