Hi, guys. This is Chef Suzy Singh, and today we're here in the kitchens of Le Cordon Bleu for eHow.com. I'm so excited about today's recipe. We're going to do a sweet potato pie with vanilla wafer crust. Let's get started. So, the first thing we're going to do, is do the vanilla wafer crust. We're going to start off with a bowl, adding your in your four vanilla wafers. What you want to do, is you really want to crush this up. We're just going to crush it by hand, this is really fun to do with your family. And then, we're going to add a fourth of a cup of melted butter, right on in and then, we're going to add sugar. All you're going to have to do is, whisk this together. And then, you're going to pour this into a pan, just like this, a little pie pan. And you want to press the vanilla wafers down, so I'm just going to press this all the way across. A lot of the times that I've seen, when it comes to sweet potato pies, is that a lot of the crust is at the bottom. And you really want this to cook out properly. So, when I'm pressing this down, I'm pushing everything from the bottom, all the way up to the sides, just like this. It's a lot of fun, again, your kids could do this, or your husband or wife. This is a pretty fun thing. O.k., so, now, we're going to make the filling for the sweet potato pie. So, we're going to add in two eggs, we're going to add in the sweet potato puree. Easy way to do this, if you want to make it all natural. Just cut up the sweet potatoes, make sure you take out the skin, and roast it for about 45 minutes at 325 degrees, with just a little bit of salt and pepper, super simple. Then, we're going to add in a little bit of vanilla, we're going to add in some cinnamon. We're going to add in this gorgeous cream cheese and that's what's going to give it that concealed texture that we're looking for. And if that's not enough, then we're going to add in some corn syrup, we're going to add in a little bit of salt and some butter. So, we're going to use this stand mixer, because, I mean, this is a lot of stuff, isn't it? What's so great about this recipe, is that it's all in one inclusive recipe. It's so easy to do and it's so simple that you could do it, your children could do it, your husband, your wife can do it, anybody can do it with you, it's so simple. Alright, guys, so now that we've put the ingredients into the stand mixer, we want to go for about ten minutes. And then, you have this gorgeous sweet potato puree. So, what we're going to do immediately, is we're going to put this right into our vanilla wafer crust. Oh, yeah, this is gorgeous, it just looks really nice and creamy. So, I'm going to spread this our evenly, just like that. And now, we're going to put the marshmallows right on top, super-duper simple. So, what I love doing is, instead of using a full marshmallow, I'll cut in half and then, layer it around. And you'll have this beautiful decorative design once you're done with this. And you can actually turn this into anything, you can turn this into a rose, you could just do circles, really it's gorgeous. You can have your initials in there, it's your sweet potato pie, so you could do whatever you want with it. We're going to put this in the oven for 45 minutes at 350 degrees. Once you're done, this is what it turns into, pretty beautiful isn't it? Let's take a look, oh, wow, guys, check out the consistency in this, it's perfect. It's completely homogeneous mixture and it smells so good, delicious. This looks amazing , let's try it. Oh, my gosh, you've got the sweetness, it's coming from the puree, you've got that gooeyness coming from the marshmallows. And you've got that crunch coming form the vanilla wafers that we have at the bottom. This is absolutely delicious, and it's a new twist on an old classic of sweet potato pie. Thank you for visiting me, here in the kitchens of Le Cordon Bleu, my name is Chef Suzy Singh with eHow.com.
