The gingersnap crust is my favorite and it is the best for this recipe because the ginger tastes amazing with the sweet potato. If you love sweet potato desserts, try this Gluten Free Sweet Potato Bread Pudding, or these Gluten Free Sweet Potato Cheesecake recipes.
Using a premade gluten free crust is a huge time saver. It also ensures you have an even crust. I have made enough pie crusts with some parts of the crust thicker than others to know it is hard.
TIP: I decided to roast my sweet potatoes the night before so they would be chilled and ready the next day.
How to roast sweet potatoes:
If you decide you prefer to roast your sweet potatoes instead of using canned, here is how to do that.
First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Next, prick them with a fork a few times so that the steam can vent out. Place them in the oven, and allow to cook for one hour until the sweet potatoes are soft.
Remove the soft sweet potato from the rind and add to a bowl. Add a little water and use a mixer to whip the sweet potato until it is creamy and smooth. This can also be done in a Vitamix or blender.
Can you use canned sweet potato puree?
You can definitely use canned sweet potato puree in this recipe. I like the Sprout market canned sweet potato, but there are lots of others in the grocery stores as well.
This pie crust was so easy to work with. Just remove the lid and you are ready to pour in the pie filling!
All I had to do was mix the sweet potato puree into the wet ingredients and pour them all into this crust. If you prefer to make a crust, you can try the crust recipe in this Gluten Free Caramel Apple Tart.
The tin the crust comes from doubles as a baking dish, so all I had to do was fill the pie crust with the gluten free sweet potato pie batter and put the whole thing into the oven.

Can you use sweet potatoes or yams?

Do you have to pre-bake this gluten free crust?
Nope, because this is a graham cracker crust, you do not have to pre-bake it like you would other gluten free crusts.
