I first realized how well mashed potatoes work in a pie when I made my maple bacon potato pie. I love sweet potatoes as much as the next person (OK – a whole lot more than the average person), but I strongly believe that there should be a place at the table for Idaho® Potato pies as well. Mashed potatoes are a blank slate for so many pie flavors!
This honey-sweetened blackberry buttermilk potato pie is the country pie that you never knew you needed in your life. Think pumpkin pie but more complex, with notes of berry, lemon, and honey in a cornmeal crust. I couldn’t get enough of this pie and just looking at it again now makes me wish I still had some in my house.
You can make this potato pie using leftover buttery mashed potatoes or make mashed potatoes for the pie and eat the rest with dinner!
