Sweet Potato Cheesecake
2 (8 oz) packages Cream Cheese
1 C Sour Cream
1 C mashed, cooked Sweet Potatoes
1 C Brown Sugar
1 Large Egg
2 Large egg whites
2 tsp Vanilla flavoring
2 prepared graham cracker crusts
Prepare oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl beat together cream cheese and sour cream until creamy.
Add sweet potatoes and brown sugar.
Add egg and egg whites one at a time beating after each addition.
Spoon mixture into crusts.
Bake 40 to 50 minutes or until set in the middle. Remove from oven to cool.
Refrigerate for about 2 hours before serving.
Tips: Let cream cheese sit on counter for a couple hours to soften so it is easier to mix with Sour Cream.
I use the canned sweet potatoes and microwave them so they are warm and easier to mash.
You can put whipping cream on the top or eat plain.
I would check the pie at 40 minutes but be prepared for it to take a while longer. Sometimes it takes an hour. It does raise quite a bit but then when done and cooling it settles back down a little.
I really like this recipe and it is very yummy. It really doesn't take long to make and makes 2 pies at one time. If you try it leave us a comment and tell us what you think. I'll try to remember to take a picture when I make mine tomorrow and post it.
