Maryland White Potato Pie

A soul-food favorite and a Chesapeake tradition dating back to colonial days, Maryland White Potato Pie is a bright and beautiful take on the simple potato with a healthy helping of sweetness and a ripping citrus zest.

Total time: 75 minutes

Serves: 6


☐  2 large potatoes, cooked, peeled and mashed

☐  2/3 cup unsalted butter

☐  1 cup sugar

☐  ½ tsp baking powder

☐  ½ tsp salt

☐  ½ cup heavy whipping cream

☐  ½ cup milk

☐  4 eggs, beaten

☐  4 lemons for juice and zest

☐  2 lemons, sliced for garnish (optional)

☐  1 ½ tsp vanilla extract

☐  ¼ tsp nutmeg

☐  1 9-inch pie crust using your favorite recipe, or frozen

Step 1: Combine the potatoes, butter, sugar, baking powder and salt in medium bowl and mix well.

Step 2: Slowly add whipping cream and milk stirring as you go until you’ve got a smooth and even consistency.

Step 3: Add lemon juice, zest from two lemons, vanilla extract, nutmeg, and eggs. Mix well.

Step 4: Pour into crust and bake at 350° for 55 minutes. For a beautiful pie, top with thinly sliced lemon circles around the edge of the pie or, halve the circles and twist each into a bow, placing one for each slice with another slice in the middle. Your pie will look like a Maryland sunrise!
