  • pinch of black pepper


  1. Make/buy your pie dough, add to a 9 inch pie pan, prick fork all over dough, add foil over pie dough and add pie weights or dried beans.
  2. Bake pie dough with weights for 15 minutes at 425, reduce heat to 375 and continue to cook for another to 10-15 minutes. let pie dough cool completely.
  3. Boil or bake sweet potatoes until tender. (Baking 400 in oven 1 hour, boiling, peel and boil till tender and about to mash.
