Preheat the oven to 400 degrees f.

Place the sweet potatoes onto a baking sheet.

Poke the sweet potatoes with a fork and bake for 40 minutes or until tender.

Let the sweet potatoes cool, then peel and remove any dark spots.

Place the sweet potatoes, butter, eggs, sugars, milk, and all the spices into a large glass mixing bowl or a stand mixer and beat until combined and smooth.

Pour the pie filling into the pre-made pie crust.

Bake in the oven for 50 minutes or until the pie filling has set.

Remove the pie from the oven.

Place the pie onto a cooling rack and allow it to cool to room temp.

Once the pie has cooled, place it into the fridge overnight.

Before you serve you’ll need to make the cinnamon rolls.

Remove the cinnamon rolls from the can and place them onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.

Bake the cinnamon rolls according to their directions.

Once the cinnamon rolls are baked, allow them to cool for 5 minutes before placing them onto the top of the sweet potato pie.

Pour the salted caramel sauce into the disposable piping bag.

Cut the tip of the piping bag off and drizzle the sauce over the pie.

Slice the pie.

Serve and enjoy!

I have never thought of using sweet potatoes in this way I love sweet potatoes and love cinnamon rolls but have never thought of combining the two together. Sounds intriguing and delicious though

I don’t think I’ve ever had a sweet potato pie, in my mind sweet potato is a savoury dish so this could be interesting to try. Although I do love cinnamon rolls x
