Recipe Hazelnut Crumble
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Prepare Pastry for Single-Crust Pie. On a lightly floured surface, use your hands to slightly flatten pastry. Roll pastry from center to edges into a circle about 12 inches in diameter. Wrap pastry circle around the rolling pin. Unroll into a 9-inch pie plate. Ease pastry into pie plate without stretching it. Trim pastry to 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie plate. Fold under extra pastry even with the edge of plate. Crimp edge as desired. Do not prick pastry. Line pastry with a double thickness of foil. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove foil. Bake for 4 to 5 minutes more or until set and dry. Remove from oven. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl stir together brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg; set aside. In a medium bowl combine eggs, milk, sour cream, bourbon, and vanilla. Stir in mashed sweet potatoes and melted butter. Add sweet potato mixture to brown sugar mixture, stirring just until combined.
  3. Place the pastry shell on the oven rack. Carefully pour sweet potato mixture into pastry shell. Sprinkle with Hazelnut Crumble. Bake about 50 minutes or until center is set. Cool on a wire rack. Cover and chill within 2 hours.
