Sweet Potato Pie - Vlf (Ovo-Lacto)

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Low Fat

 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Cooked mashed sweet
  • Potatoes
  • 5 Egg whites, slightly beaten
  • Or egg substitute
  • 1 c Brown sugar (granulated)
  • 1 ts Cinnamon
  • 1 ts Nutmeg
  • 1/4 ts Allspice
  • 1/2 ts Vanilla
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1 c Evaporated skim milk or
  • Lowfat sweetened condensed
  • Milk


4 ts Sugar (optional)
1 Box Phyllo dough

1 c Chopped roasted chestnuts

Preheat oven to 425. Lightly spray 2 pie pans with nonstick cooking spray.

FILLING: I used a pressure cooker to cook the sweet potatoes until very
soft and not stringy.

Mash very well. (I used a regular mixer)

Combine sugar, spices in a little bowl. Last add vanilla with the spices
and then mix into the potatoes.

Now , beat your egg whites and mix it in with the potato mixture. Slowly
mix in your evaporated skim milk and set aside.

CRUST * I took out the entire stack of phyllo sheets from the box. Turned
my pie pans over and cut the entire stack to the appx. circumference of the
pan so I had a stack of circular dough.

Quickly, (dough dries out very fast and sticks together) layer 1 or 2
sheets of phyllo on each of the pans, spray very LIGHTLY with non-stick
cooking spray and sprinkle with sugar and repeat until crust is the
thickness you desire. (For 2 pies I used all the phyllo dough in the box) I
moistened my fingers to seal the edge of the crust and crimp as with a
"normal" crust.

Cover edges of crust loosely with foil.

Pour filling into the phyllo crust. Sprinkle chopped chestnuts and
cinnamon on top if desired.

Bake for 15 minutes at 425. Reduce temperature to 350 and bake for about 30
minutes more.

Enjoy, all my SAD relatives loved it! (Before they would eat it the asked
me "is this a REAL sweet potato pie, you know what we mean" to which I
answered "but of course!")
