Preparation

Step 1

1. Preheat oven to 350°.

2. Combine sweet potato and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Add
1/2 teaspoon vanilla and next 3 ingredients; stir until smooth and
completely combined. Spread in an even layer in bottom of shell. Add
chopped pecans evenly over sweet potato mixture. Lay pecan halves flat
in a circle around perimeter.

3. Combine granulated sugar and 2 large eggs in a separate bowl; whisk
until well blended. Whisk in corn syrup, melted butter, and remaining
1 teaspoon vanilla. Pour mixture slowly over pecan layer. Do not
overfill. (You may have excess.)

4. Bake at 350° for 50 to 55 minutes or until pie is puffed, set, and
golden brown. Remove and let cool. Serve with Chantilly cream.


Paul Prudhomme's Chantilly cream:

2/3 c. heavy cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp brandy
1 tsp. Grand Marnier
1/4 c. sugar
2 tbsp sour cream

Refrigerate a medium-size bowl and beaters until very cold. Combine
cream, vanilla, brandy and Grand Marnier in the bowl and beat with
electric mixer on medium speed 1 minute. Add the sugar and sour cream
and beat on medium just until soft peaks form, about 3 minutes. Do not over beat.
