  • Summary

    Familiar pie spices -- cinnamon, nutmeg, and fresh ginger -- give the pureed filling unmistakable autumnal flavor. Reroll the pastry scraps and cut out leaf shapes, baking them on their own and scattering them across the top for an effect mimicking nature's seasonal shift.

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
    • 1/2 cup fine yellow cornmeal
    • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
    • 3 tablespoons sugar
    • 1 stick chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    • 1 large egg, separated
    • 2 to 3 tablespoons ice water
    • 2 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes (5 medium)
    • 1 cup whole milk
    • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
    • 3 large eggs
    • 1/3 cup sugar
    • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
