Sweet Potato Pie & Maple Praline Sauce


  • Pastry for a single-crust pie (9-inches)
  • 1¼ cups sugar, divided
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup mashed sweet potatoes
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon maple flavoring
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
Maple Praline Sauce
  • ½ cup butter, cubed
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon maple flavoring
  • ¼ cup sour cream


  1. Line a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate with pastry; trim and flute edges. In a small bowl, combine ¼ cup sugar, pecans and cinnamon; sprinkle evenly into pastry shell. Set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, sweet potatoes, buttermilk, butter, syrup, maple flavoring, cloves and remaining sugar. Pour over pecan layer.

  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 60–70 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cover edges with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Cool on wire rack.

  4. For sauce, in a small heavy skillet, melt butter. Add pecans; cook over medium heat until toasted, about 4 minutes. Add the sugar, syrup and maple flavoring; cook and stir for 2–4 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat; stir in sour cream. Serve with pie.
