Sweet Potato Cheesecake Pie is the best combination of two classic desserts in one. Both cheesecake lovers and sweet potato pie lovers will enthusiastically dig into this dessert, perfect for the holiday season.

What’s your favorite kind of holiday pie?

Berry pies like Apple, Blueberry and Rhubarb or Custard pies like Sweet Potato and Pumpkin?

For me, it’s the custard type ones like Pumpkin Pie or Sweet Potato so what did I do for this dessert – I combined two of my favorite desserts in one pie. Sweet Potato Pie and Cheesecake – who can decide which is better – I can’t, so with this dessert no choice is necessary!

Both the cheesecake lovers and the sweet potato pie lovers will enthusiastically dig into this decadent dessert!

Artistic Desserts

I can develop delicious cake, cookie and other dessert recipes, however, I don’t consider myself an artistic baker. Every year I try to challenge myself with at least one stunner of a dessert. That is how this one came about.

Looking for other artistic desserts to wow your guests this year, but something that isn’t too hard or complicated to create? Check out some of my other Artistic Desserts. These desserts are as beautiful to look at as they are delicious.

Pie Crust Substitutions

If you’d like to take a short cut and skip making the pie crust from scratch, there are many store bought options. You can buy a freezer pie crust or use ready make mixes that are so easy you only need to add water, including gluten free pie crust options!


Don’t forget to let the crust hang over the pan when you blind bake it, so that when shrinkage occurs in the baking process, you will still have a full crust.

  • Add them separately to the pie crust.
  • Using a knife, swirl the two bases in an S pattern.

  • Bake for 45 – 50 minutes.

One thing about baking pies. They should be baked until just done. If you leave them in the oven just a little longer, they will crack on the top. So mine cracked. I baked mine for an hour, but it was probably ready at 50 minutes.
