Nutrition Info Per Serving



  • 1 (9 inch) pre made pie crust
  • 1 (29 oz) can Bruce’s Yam Cut Sweet Potatoes in Syrup; drained
  • 3 whole, large or X-large eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice



  • 1 cup pecan dieses
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • whipped cream for serving

Steps to Prepare

  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Place empty pie shell in the oven to bake for 10 minutes.
  3. Remove from oven and reduce temperature to 350 degrees F.
  4. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat together the sweet potatoes and eggs until smooth. Add the milk, cream, flour and spice.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes then scatter the streusel topping over the pie.
  6. Continue to bake for an additional 20 minutes or until pie has set. 
  7. If the crust gets too dark, lay a sheet of tin foil over the top.
  8. To make streusel, combine the pecan pieces, brown sugar and cinnamon in a plastic bag and run a rolling pin across it to somewhat crush pecans (you will want some pecan pieces so do not over-crush the nuts).

Serve with whipped cream, if desired.

Cool to room temperature before slicing.
