Sweet Yam Pie
 
Author: 
Cuisine: Dessert
 
 
 
Serves: Makes 1 (9-inch) Pie
 
Ingredients
  • For the browned butter pie dough:
  • 9 oz. butter
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. water
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • For the yam pie filling:
  • lb. yams
  • ½ cup butter, cubed
  • cup sugar
  • ½ cup milk
  • eggs
  • /8 tsp. kosher salt
  • ½ tsp. nutmeg
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • tsp. vanilla extract
 
Instructions
  1. For the browned butter pie dough:
  2. In a medium sized pan, add butter and bring to a simmer. Stir and scrape the bottom of the pan occasionally until the milk fat browns, approximately 8 to 12 minutes. Pour browned butter into a metal bowl and immediately place over an ice bath. Whisk butter until it begins to solidify and the brown solids no longer sink to the bottom. Remove bowl from ice bath and scrape down sides of pan and whisk again until well combined. Chill before use.
  3. Using a pastry cutter, blend butter and sugar until well combined, but not light. Add egg and egg yolk, pinch of salt, vanilla and water. Mix well to combine. Add flours and mix lightly until just incorporated.
  4. On a clean work surface, use the heel of your hand to press the dough away from you in a smooth, sliding motion while being careful not to overwork the dough. Form a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes prior to rolling.
  5. Place rolled out dough into 9-inch pie pan and bake at 350˚F just until crust begins to brown, approximately 8 to 10 minutes.
  6. For the yam pie filling:
  7. Preheat oven to 290⁰F.
  8. Cook yams until tender. Place hot yams, butter, sugar and milk in a blender. Mix on high speed until creamy. Pour mixture in a medium sized bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour batter in prebaked shell. Bake for 12 minutes.
