Dutch Sweet Potato Pie Recipe

This Dutch Sweet Potato Pie Recipe is silky, rich, creamy, and smooth with an amazing crunchy streusel topping. Goes head to head with your favorite pumpkin pie at any gathering.

  • Prep Time: 45 mins
  • Cook Time: 40 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hour 25 mins

Yield: 8 1x


  • For the Filling:
  • 1 1/2 lbs sweet potato
  • 1/2 cup salted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 TB freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp table salt
  • For the Streusel Topping:
  • 1 recipe for crunchy Streusel Topping
  • For the pie crust
  • 1 recipe for all butter crust


  1. Prepare ahead:Make the streusel topping, cover, and chill until ready to use. Make the pie crust, cover and chill until ready to use. Let it sit at room temp about 10 minutes before rolling out to use. Heat oven to 425F and roast whole sweet potatoes with skin on for 60 minutes or until very soft (may need to roast longer if your potatoes are large.) Let cool before removing skin.
  2. Make the Filling: Place roasted, peeled sweet potatoes in a large bowl. Mash well. Add butter and mix well. Add remaining filling ingredients, beating on medium speed with electric mixer until smooth and silky.
  3. Roll out the pie dough into a circle that is a bit larger than rim of a deep dish 9″ pie pan, leaving enough edge to fold over and crimp. Press dough into pan, fold the edges under and crimp or use fork to press edges down. Use rubber spatula to transfer filling into pie crust.
  4. Bake at 425F on lowest rack for 10 minutes. Lower oven to 325F. Sprinkle streusel topping over pie and bake another 50-60 minutes or until center is set. Cover edges of pie loosely with foil if needed to prevent edges from browning too quickly. Let pie cool completely before slicing.


Roasting the sweet potatoes whole with skin on gives them a depth of flavor that only whole roasting provides. You can roast potatoes a day ahead.
If you’re in a time crunch, store bought pie crust can work in a jiffy. However, homemade will taste best 🙂

      As a North American from the Northeast, I am always confused by Sweet Potatoe-White, Sweet Potatoe Orange, Sweet Potatoe-Purple and Yams in all their verities…The Guy in the produce department is no help…He labels them whatever the invoice says…I could wind up with a watermelon…He’s from Central Europe…when I ask him where, and I have many times, He gives me a towns name but no country, so you see where I’m at…Can you shed some light on this subject…I would really apricate it. Up til now I just buy what I see used in the recipe…this one didn’t have a pic…B…and Happy Holidays to All…Which ever you follow…

      Sweet potato pie does sound delicious. I haven’t had any version of sweet potato apart from Indian cuisine. So as a pie form, it does sound intriguing.

      • thenafranssen

      Wow, this looks amazing! I am always on the hunt for new pie recipes and this may be it! Gonna give it a try!

      • Flora_the_Sweaterist

      This looks AMAZING – really think I can make that? It looks delicious, and because I’m a new at baking, I might need to give it a few tries. It is good inspiration, though, to see the photos! Thank you!

      • Menaka Bharathi

      looks so delicious and yumm, I would surely try this before the season ends. I never thought sweet potato can be made into this

      • Tiffany Yong

      Oh yum, this looks like something I will love to try to make! Are the sweet potatoes you used the orange ones or is it the purple ones? Is there a difference in the amount to use if you are using different types of sweet potatoes?

      • Ellie Plummer

      This looks and sounds so delicious! I need to try this.

      • Marie

      Looks like a lovely pie to munch on while on a movie marathon! If I had the patience for baking I would totally make this!
