  • 1 whole Deep Dish Unbaked Pie Crust, Store Bought Or Your Favorite Recipe
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, baked
  • 1/4 c. Light brown sugar
  • 1/4 c. granulated white sugar
  • 1 whole egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 c. heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp. Bourbon, optional
  • 3/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 3/4 tsp. all-spice
  • 3 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened


  • 11/4 c. white granulated sugar
  • 1 c. dark corn syrup
  • 3 whole large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch of Salt
  • 3/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 c. halved pecans


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F. Have your pie crust ready in a deep dish pie pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the mashed sweet potatoes, both sugars, eggs, whipping cream, and vanilla extract and mix with a handheld electric mixer. Do not over-mix. 
  3. Add the salt, Bourbon, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and butter and mix until well blended. 
  4. The pie should still have some lumps throughout, and this is okay. Pour the sweet potato pie filling inside the pie crust, smooth it out with a rubber spatula and set aside.
  5. In a separate bowl, combine sugar, corn syrup, eggs, butter, vanilla extract, salt, cinnamon, and chopped pecans and stir until well blended. Begin to pour the pecan filling over the sweet potato pie. Only fill up to the top of the crust. Don’t overfill the pie. 
  6. Place the pie on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow cooling before serving, and enjoy!
