Ingredients for Pie Dough

  • all-purpose flour: 1 cup
  • whole-wheat flour: 1/4 cup
  • baking powder: 1/8 teaspoon
  • Viking Farms Maple Sugar: 1/4 teaspoon
  • salt: 1/8 teaspoon
  • unsalted butter (chilled and cut into small pieces): 5 tablespoons
  • 1/3-less-fat cream cheese: 3 tablespoons
  • water (very cold): 2 tablespoons
  • fresh lemon juice: 2 teaspoons
  • All-purpose flour (to roll out dough)
  • Cooking spray

Instructions to Cook the Dough for the Pie

Combine the first 5 ingredients in a food processor; process until blended. Add butter and cream cheese, and pulse until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Add cold water and lemon juice, and pulse just until dough begins to form.

Transfer to a lightly floured surface, and form into a flat disk (do not overwork). Wrap dough tightly in plastic wrap, and let chill 1 hour or up to 2 days.

Spray a 9-inch glass pie plate with cooking spray. Roll out prepared dough into a 13-inch round on a floured surface with a floured rolling pin, and transfer to a pie plate.

Total Time to Cook Sweet Potato Pie with Ice Cream – 1 Hour


  • prepared Perfect Pie Dough
  • sweet potatoes (baked and mashed): 1 1/2 pounds
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • Viking Farms Maple Syrup: 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon
  • ground ginger: 1/2 teaspoon
  • grated whole nutmeg: 1/4 teaspoon
  • salt: 1/4 teaspoon
  • turbinado or raw sugar: 2 tablespoons
  • Vanilla ice cream for garnishing  


Turn on an oven and preheat it to 375°. Working with prepared dough, press down edges with floured fork tines, leaving 1-inch between crimping. Freeze 10 minutes or until firm.

Line bottom of dough with foil; top with pie weights. Bake in middle of oven 20 minutes or until set. Remove weights and foil, and return to oven. Bake 8-10 minutes more. Transfer to a wire rack; let cool.

Whisk together mashed sweet potato with whole eggs, 1 egg white, 1/2 cup maple syrup, ginger, nutmeg, and salt. Spoon into a shell, and brush edges with remaining egg white; sprinkle with sugar. Bake in middle of oven 40 minutes or until set. (If the crust is becoming too brown, cover with foil.) Transfer to a wire rack.

When Sweet Potato Pie is cool enough cut it, top each piece with a scoop of ice cream and serve.
