Courtney Hill


1 (14.1 oz.) pkg. refrigerated piecrusts

1/2 (4 oz.) unsalted butter

1 cinnamon stick

2 whole cloves

4 cups mashed roasted sweet potatoes

1 (14-oz.) can sweetened condensed milk

1 cup granulated sugar

4 large eggs, beaten

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Step 1
Preheat oven to 350F. Fit each piecrust into a 9-inch pie pan. Prick the bottoms of the piecrusts several times with a fork. Line piecrusts with parchment paper, and fill with pie weights or dried beans. Bake in preheated oven until slightly golden, about 15 minutes. Remove weights and parchment, and cool completely, about 1 hour.

Step 2
Preheat oven to 350F. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium. Add cinnamon stick and cloves; cook, stirring occasionally, until foam subsides and butter begins to darken and smell fragrant, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat, and pour through a fine wire-mesh strainer over a bowl. Discard cinnamon stick and cloves.

Step 3
Beat brown butter, sweet potatoes, condensed milk, sugar, eggs, vanilla, lemon juice, and salt with an electric mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Divide mixture evenly between 2 piecrusts. Bake on middle rack in preheated oven until filling is slightly puffed and set, about 45 minutes. (If the crust gets too dark, loosely cover with aluminum foil.) Cool at least 1 hour before serving.
