Sweet Potato Pie - Gluten Free, Soy and Dairy Free

Sweet Potato Pie

3 medium sweet potatoes, baked, peeled and whipped in food processor until smooth and creamy - all lumps and strings whipped smooth
1 cup organic natural cane sugar
1 cup coconut milk
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Garam Masala spice
freshly grated nutmeg (about 1/3 nut)
1/4 teaspoon salt

Add all ingredients to food processor and blend completely.
Pour into unbaked pie crust
Bake 350 degrees for about 45 minutes or until fully cooked.

Dream Pastry (wheat and soy free)

This pastry is remarkable.  I think it is every bit as good as a wheat pastry.

½ cup tapioca flour
½ cup cornstarch
½ cup brown rice flour
1 cup sweet rice flour
1 rounded teaspoon xanthan gum
½ teaspoon salt

Mix dry ingredients to blend.

Cut in:
½ cup coconut oil
½ cup Spectrum shortening

Mix liquid ingredients together and add to flour / shortening mixture.

1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
4 tablespoons ice water

A bit more water may be needed to form a ball.  Might require kneading.

Divide dough and roll out half on waxed paper.  Invert dough with waxed paper over pie pan and peel away the waxed paper, pressing dough to fit pie pan.

This recipe makes two pie shells or a top and bottom crust for a single 9” pie.
