How do you fix a runny sweet potato pie?
Notes: If your potato mixture comes out too runny or juicy, add flour (1 tablespoon at a time) to mixture, before pouring into pie shells. (I discovered this little trick out of desperation and it works)!
How do I keep my sweet potato pie from falling apart?
It takes time for the pie to cool down to the point where it is no longer going up in temperature. The strategy is by puling the pie before the filling is completely set that the carryover heat will bring it to a point where the custard is set (sweet potato pie is considered a custard pie).
Why did my sweet potato pie crack?
Those cracks you see in your pie are the result of overcooked eggs, eggs that have tightened up so much, in an uneven way, that they’ve created fissures in the filling. Usually you’ll notice cracks around the edge of the pie first, which makes sense; the edges cook more quickly than the interior.
How do I know when my sweet potato pie is done?
Follow these tips:
- When done, give the pie a nudge. The center of the pie should have some give; it should jiggle slightly in the center.
- The pie has an internal temperature of 175°F on an instant-read thermometer when done.
Can sweet potato pie sit out overnight?
Bacteria grow rapidly at temperatures between 40 °F and 140 °F; cooked sweet potatoes should be discarded if left out for more than 2 hours at room temperature. After baking, pie should be left at room temperature as the cooling process normally takes 2-4 hours.
What is the best way to thicken pie filling?
The most common thickeners used for pie fillings are flour, cornstarch and tapioca. These starches all work well to thicken pie filling juices but not of equal power. All thickeners have advantages and disadvantage. The trick is to use just the right amount to achieve the desired thickness after the pie is baked.
Can sweet potato pie sit out?
You sure can. If you are preparing this sweet potato pie a day in advance, you can keep it out at room temperature and covered loosely with foil. If you are making the pie more than a day in advance, cover the pie with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 4 days.
How do you get the strings out of sweet potato pie?
I usually use a hand-held mixer to remove strings from the sweet potatoes after they are cooked.
Do you eat sweet potato pie hot or cold?
HOW TO SERVE SWEET POTATO PIE. This recipe can be served at chilled or at room temperature. While I would not recommend slicing into it straight from the oven, it would be ok to re-warm it slightly too. I love a slice served with a dollop of soft, sweetened whipped cream, and a little sprinkling of cinnamon.
Why does my pie crust split when I roll it out?
If your pie dough breaks and crumbles when you try to roll it out, it’s probably too dry. This is a relatively easy fix. Just sprinkle some cold water over the dough with your fingers and work it in—gently! If your dough gets too warm, send it back into the fridge to chill out.
Do you have to refrigerate a sweet potato pie?
After baking, pie should be left at room temperature as the cooling process normally takes 2-4 hours. Within 4 hours, the pie should then be placed in the refrigerator. Pie may be refrigerated for 2-3 days.
How long does sweet potato pie last?
The baked and cooled pie will keep for up to 4 days stored in the refrigerator. It will also keep for up to 1 month in the freezer.
Can you overcook sweet potatoes?
(Another hot tip if you’re boiling your sweet potatoes: Don’t overcook them! They tend to absorb water, which could make the filling watery.) So say you do have some undercooked bits of sweet potato.
How do I know when my pie is done?
Tip: What’s the best way to tell if your pie is done? For fruit pie, the top crust will be golden brown, and you’ll be able to see filling bubbling around the edges and/or through the vents. For best results, let the filling bubble for at least 5 minutes before removing the pie from the oven.
How do you know when a pie is set?
Fruit Pies Don’t pull the pie until you see the filling juices bubbling in the center as well as around the edges. If it’s a pie with a full top crust, you won’t see juices bubbling, so just bake it until you see color underneath (this should take well over an hour, sometimes two hours or more, at 350°).
