Total time: 2 hours, 20 minutes, plus chilling time for the dough | Serves 8
Note: Adapted from Market Garden Brewery in Cleveland. Muscovado sugar and vanilla paste are available at cooking and baking supply stores, as well as select gourmet and well-stocked markets, and are available online. To roast sweet potatoes, prick unpeeled whole potatoes with a knife and roast at 375 degrees until a knife pierces easily, about 1 hour, depending on the size of the potatoes. Cool before peeling.
Step 1In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and sugar. Cut in the butter using a pastry cutter or fork, until the butter pieces are reduced to the size of small peas. Drizzle over the water, and gently stir until the mixture starts to come together to form a dough. Knead the mixture lightly to form a cohesive dough. Form the dough into a disk, wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour. On a lightly floured board, roll the dough out to a thickness of slightly less than one-fourth inch. Fit the dough into a 9-inch pie plate or tin and trim any excess.

Market Garden Brewery's sweet potato pie
By Noelle Carter |
Dear SOS: A while ago, on a visit to Cleveland, our son took us to eat and drink at the Market Garden Brewery. I believe it is near the interesting Garden Market on the near west side of Cleveland. I ordered the sweet potato pie. It was out of this world! I was glad I had eaten lightly before devouring it.

Dear Ruth: This is no ordinary sweet potato pie. Creamy mashed sweet potatoes are lightly spiced with nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla paste, and sweetened with a touch of honey, sugar and muscovado brown sugar -- a rich, dark, unfiltered brown sugar -- for a wonderful medley of flavors. Not too sweet and not overly spiced. In a word: perfect. This is one pie I'll be making again and again.
