Sweet Potato Crust

This sweet potato crust is a great way to add wonderful color and depth of flavor to a savory pie. It can be used for the cheese pie, but would also work well for a chicken pot pie or a quiche. Another bonus is that you get added nutrition from the sweet potatoes!

Sweet Potato Crust: (makes crust for 1 pie bottom. double if using on top, too)
1 cup whole wheat white flour
1 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1 t. ground red pepper

1 cup cooked sweet potatoes
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg, beaten

In a food processor, process the sweet potatoes until smooth. Add all of the dry ingredients and process again, scraping down the sides. Add the wet ingredients and process until a ball forms in the bowl. Remove the ball, roll it out, and line your baking dish with it.

Pre-cook your crust in a 350 degree oven until set, approx. 15 minutes, for most recipes.
