Ok... I don't usually do this... but... What the hell. This is my blog. I do what I want.
So... some of you know that I went to culinary school. Now I don't bake-- it requires to much precision and not enough *taste taste... hmmm... needs this! * But PIE! Pie I can do! Cuz PIE! is cookery with baking around the edges and you can BUY PIE SHELLS! :D
So I was discussing on the twitter how I love pie and how it is getting to be pumpkin/ sweet potato pie season ( I was also IRL eating gingersnaps and drinking root-beer and OMG if you want your taste buds to essplode, that is a helluva combo) ( but I digress) (which I do a lot)
ANYWAY... @BeasBookNook challenged me to make a pie... with out any of the regular spices ( she's allergic)
So I did!
Recipe ( ish)
3 cups of root beer concentrated down to about 1/2 a cup.
1 lb of sweet potato ( boiled then peeled)
1/2 cup condensed milk
2 eggs, whisked ( pro tip- to keep from having weird bits you can run the eggs through a mesh strainer. If you notice a lot of the egg isn't going through, you may have to add another egg)
On VERY LOW HEAT combine the milk, eggs, butter and root beer syrup. STIR. Don't let it boil!!!
I used my hand masher-- but If I were y'all I'd use a food processor-- mash up the sweet potatoes. Combine sweet potatoes and egg/milk mixture.
Put into whatever shell you like and bake.
If you try it, let me know. It doesn't taste like root beer, but it is pretty tasty!.
I'll post pictures later!!!
