sweet potato tart

This recipe is based on a pumpkin tart shown on the PBS TV show Martha Bakes. Not a big fan of pumpkin so I made an ingredient swap, but feel free to use the original, I didn’t change much.

1 tart pan
1 pie crust
2 cups sweet potato puree
1  14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 375℉ degrees.

Roll the pie crust large enough to fill the tart pan
gently place crust in tart pan
line crust with parchment and fill with pie weights or dried beans

Bake for 30 to 35 minute
remove parchment and weights
continue baking about 10 more minutes, or until bottom of crust is lightly browned
remove from oven

Increase oven temperature to 425℉ degrees.

Combine sweet potato puree, condensed milk, eggs, cinnamon, and salt
pour filling into pre-baked tart shell
bake for about 15 minutes, or until slightly set

Streusel topping
3/4 cup light-brown sugar
3 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt
4 tablespoon unsalted butter, cut into small cubes and chilled
1 1/2 cups pecan, halves or pieces

Combine brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt
using your hands, mix in butter until mixture is crumbly
add pecans and mix to combine

Remove tart from oven and reduce oven temperature to 350 ℉ degrees
sprinkle topping over sweet potato filling and return tart to oven
bake 35 to 40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown

Let cool completely before serving

It's #latke season one and all! Happy #hannukah to you and yours. A #smallbatch of course. #audreycancook #latkelove I bought a fake tree and it's a Coast Redwood. Let the #decorating begin. #christmas in #California #christmastree #decorations #nofilter required when smoke from the #thomasfire envelopes the area. Wonderful canoe ride on #morrobay not Mars. Tx @akayakshack for the rental. Look forward to next time. #audreycancook Finally, only one sleeve to go on this project. I'm grateful that #noroyarn is sturdy, since I've #frogged the body of this sweater twice and the first sleeve three time. Can I say #homestretch now? #knittersofinstagram #knitting #audreycancook Sometimes a #toastedmarshmallow over an open flame is the only thing to satisfy. #audreycancook There are just never enough #teddybears. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #audreycancook
