As the leaves turn and fall from the trees, it's hard not to want a dinner of warm soup and a toasty sandwich, followed by the season's finest sweet potato pie. So this month, we bring you a special fall menu ... no other plans or techniques or hidden agendas. Just great food for a great season to enjoy without spending the day in the kitchen. Enjoy!
Cook the bacon until crisp. Crumble the bacon and combine with the remaining ingredients except the buns. Spread 3 tablespoons of the bacon mixture on the bottom half of each bun and cover with the top. Wrap each sandwich in a paper towel. Microwave 2 at a time on 805 power for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until heated through.
For the crust, preheat the oven to 450 F. Mix the dry ingredients together. Blend in the shortening with knives or a pastry blender until the mixture is of pebbly consistency. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator. When needed, measure out these amounts:
8-inch pie: 1 to 1 3/4 cups
9-inch pie: 1 1/2 cups
10-inch pie: 1 3/4 cups
Moisten the pastry mix with enough ice water to hold the dough together when pushed lightly with a folk. Roll out on a lightly floured board or pastry cloth. Line the pan and prick the shell on the bottom and sides with a folk. Bake 10 minutes, remove from the oven, and lower the heat to 375 F.
For the filling, mix the sweet potatoes and sugar. Add the butter, nutmeg, mace, vanilla, salt, and lemon juice; mix well. Gradually add the eggs and cream; mix until smooth. Pour the mixture into the partially baked pie shell. Bake the pie at 375 F for 35 to 40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
