Sweet Potato Cream Cheese Pie

Diana Rattray
This is an easy and delicious pie to bake, with cream cheese and mashed sweet potato.


  • 8 ounces regular or light cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup mashed sweet potato
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • dash ground nutmeg
  • dash ground ginger
  • dash salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 prepared "deep dish" graham cracker pie crust, homemade or purchased


Heat oven to 350°.

Combine cream cheese, mashed sweet potato, and sugars until smooth. Blend in flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and salt. Beat in eggs and vanilla just until blended. Pour the mixture into the pie crust.

Bake 40 minutes or until center is almost set, but still a little wobbly. Cool on a rack. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight to chill thoroughly. Store leftover cheesecake in refrigerator. Top each serving with with whipped cream or drizzle with Spiced Vanilla Sauce.

Delicious dessert!!!, Member cjagmom

I tried this dessert for Thanksgiving. It was a big hit. It is just sweet enough, and awesome with whipped cream. My oldest son hates anything to do with potatoes and he loved it! My husband tried it and wants me to make it for his family for Christmas. I think I will try the spiced vanilla sauce this time. This is going to be my new fave dish for get togethers. It was so easy to make, and tastes great.
