This classic sweet potato pie with a special streusel topping that just makes it irresistible! The perfect pie to celebrate Thanksgiving or Christmas with your family!

In our family, the presence of pie - in any flavor - means "holiday." Growing up, if we had pie at any other time of the year it was surely store-bought, haha! But when it was Thanksgiving or Christmas, my mom pulled out all the stops with her pies - even making the crust from scratch. 

It's probably why I've become such a pie fanatic. It's not just the amazing flavor, it's the fact that I've enjoyed those same flavors year after year and it brings me back to those wonderfully happy childhood days. Not that my days now aren't wonderfully happy - it's just that I'm the mom now and it's crazy busy as well! :)

I've said it before here on Mostly Homemade Mom, but it's amazing how just one bite, sometimes one whiff of a dish can instantly bring you back to a more innocent time in your life. The flavor of sweet apple and spiced pumpkin and the smells of vanilla and cinnamon in the dining room where the pies sat on my mom's big hutch. I hope I'm creating those same warm memories for my boys!

This Sweet Potato Streusel Pie is a great holiday dessert tradition to start with! This is a classic sweet potato pie with a special, and in my opinion the best, crunch streusel topping ever. Your family will level this pie for sure this holiday!

Sweet Potato Streusel Pie

1 refrigerated pie crust
2 eggs
1 1/4 cup sugar
12 oz evaporated milk
1 1/2 cup mashed sweet potatoes
3/4 teaspoon McCormick cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon McCormick nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla

Streusel topping:

1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup cold butter

Thaw pie crust on counter according to package directions. Unroll carefully into a 9 inch deep dish pie crust, pressing together any seams that may have ripped apart. Crimp along the edges of the pie crust by pinching the crust as you go around. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, sugar, evaporated milk, sweet potatoes, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla until well blended and smooth. Carefully pour into pie crust. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake another 15 minutes. For topping, combine flour, brown sugar, and cold butter with a pastry blender or food processor until crumbly. Sprinkle evenly over top of pie. Return pie to oven and bake an additional 15 minutes. Allow pie to cool completely before serving.

This pie is truly one of the best holiday pies you will ever have! Are you as much a fan of McCormick spices and extracts as I am? They are the best!

  1. Cinnamon always reminds me of my mom's Snickerdoodle cookies! I can smell them baking in the oven with all that cinnamon goodness! #FlavorStory

  2. Really good vanilla! #FlavorStory

  3. #flavorstory - Poultry Seasoning - I learned to make the family stuffing when I was a child and was a big day when I got to put in the spices.

  4. Nutmeg . . . I can add it to almost anything and love it! ;) #flavorstory

  5. #flavorstory I love allspice. It makes me think of my granny's kitchen

    This pie is beautiful! I love the streusel!

  7. #FlavorStory to me cinnamon and nutmeg are the holidays scents. I simer some on the stove when guest are over and they think I'm baking and hint for a treat.

  8. My most nostalgic holiday spice has to be cinnamon--from cookies, to pumpkin pie and sweet potatoes, it seems to be a key ingredient in everything this time of year.

  9. I've never tried Sweet Potato Pie…but this looks delicious!

  10. Apple and cinnamon. Love it!

  11. Definitely cinnamon. It makes me nostalgic for the cinnamon sugar toast I'd make for myself as a snack when I was a kid. #flavorstory

  12. Oh, definitely cinnamon! All of the holidays smell like cinnamon! #FlavorStory It's the best part of Thanksgiving every year - pumpkin pie!

  13. It looks fantastic!!
    I hope I can use heavy cream (20%) instead of evaporating milk (we don't have it here)
