Sweet “P” Cookie Crust Pie

I had so much fun baking this dessert.  I was inspired to try one of my favorite desserts with delicious Goodie Girl Cookies.  We all know Sweet Potato Pie is one the southern staple desserts during the holidays.  I wanted to add the Goodie Girl Chocolate Creme Cookies as the crust.  I must say it turned out better than I thought.  Now let’s hope my family allows me to introduce this spin on sweet potato pie at the next gathering (Fingers Crossed).  Enjoy the recipe below and I hope you give it a try.

(1) Box of Chocolate Creme Goodie Girl Cookies

(2) Sweet Potatoes (Boiled and peeled)

(2) Eggs

1/2 cup of milk

1 Cup of Brown Sugar

1/2 Cup of White Sugar (You can also use light corn syrup)

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

1/4 tsp Nutmeg

1/2 tsp Cinnamon

1 1/2 stick of butter (Unsalted)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Melt 1/2 stick of butter and set aside.  In a Mixing bowl, place the box of cookies in the bowl and set to level 1 (use the dough prong attachment for mixing).  As the cookies crumble, pour the melted butter in and mix for 2 mins.  The cookie crust should have a smooth consistency that is easy to transfer to the pie dish.  Pour the crust into the pie dish ensuring the edges are covered.  I smoothed the crust with a baking specula on the edges to ensure coverage.  This process can be as rustic as you desire 🙂

Rinse the mixing bowl thoroughly.  Add sweet potatoes, milk, eggs, 1 stick butter (cut or cubed), and sugar.  Mix on level 1.  Add vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon and mix until smooth.  Pour mixture into pie dish and bake for 45 mins.  To test readiness, place a fork gently into filling and pull immediately.  If the fork has no filling attached, the pie is done.  Remove from oven and let cool before serving.  Enjoy!
