TIP: Can’t find sweet potato puree? Poke a medium sweet potato with a fork, microwave on high for 5 minutes, let cool, and scoop out the flesh. Mash flesh with a fork or process in a food processor. One medium 7-ounce sweet potato should yield the 1/2 cup puree needed for this recipe.

Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup canned sweet potato puree
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon, divided in halves
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 store-bought, refrigerated pie crust, for topping
  • Nonstick cooking spray

Utensils

  • Medium Saucepan
  • Whisk
  • Instant-Read Thermometer
  • Fine-Mesh Strainer
  • Baking Sheet
  • Step 1

    In a medium saucepan, add pureed sweet potato, egg yolks, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and nutmeg. Whisk until fully combined (it won’t be totally smooth, which is okay).

  • Step 2

    Add heavy cream and vanilla to the saucepan and whisk to combine.

  • Step 3

    Place saucepan on stove over medium heat, stirring constantly with a whisk or rubber spatula. Cook until temperature reaches 165°F–175°F on an instant-read thermometer.

  • Step 4

    Remove base from heat and pour through a fine-mesh strainer (if necessary) into an empty CREAMi™ Pint. Place pint into an ice bath. Once cooled, place storage lid on pint and freeze for 24 hours.

  • Step 5

    Preheat oven to 450°F. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray, then spread the refrigerated pie crust out onto the baking sheet. Sprinkle the pie crust with the remaining 1 tablespoon sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Bake about 15 minutes until brown, then break into pieces and set aside.

  • Step 6

    Remove pint from freezer and remove lid from pint. Place pint in outer bowl, install Creamerizer™ Paddle in outer bowl lid, and lock the lid assembly onto the outer bowl. Place bowl assembly on motor base and twist the handle right to raise the platform and lock in place.

  • Step 7

    Select GELATO.

  • Step 8

    When processing is complete, remove gelato from pint, top with pie crust pieces, and serve immediately.
