This week's Tuesday with Dorie recipe is Sweet Potato Pie Bars, being very Thanksgiving appropriate. Even if you don't celebrate Thanksgiving (like me), there is a lot to love in these pie bars - buttery shortcrust base, custardy sweet potato filling, and the piece de resistance - a toasted marshmallow topping (optional/not optional).
The only thing that caught me by surprise was how quickly the marshmallows toasted under the grill - I left the room for a minute and could smell them about to burn. Yikes!
These bars would definitely be a repeat if I ever have the time and inclination, because they are sooooo good.
The lovely tea towel my pie bars are displayed on came from the Norman Lindsay Gallery and Museum, and features a cat cartoon by Norman Lindsay, who was apparently very fond of cats and owned several in his lifetime. I think it goes well with my cat Fish's Eddy plate, which is hiding under the bars.
