A Japanese flavor pie




So that’s this month’s Daring Baker’s challenge.

Rachael from pizzarossa was our lovely June 2013 Daring Bakers’ host and she had us whipping up delicious pies in our kitchens! Cream pies, fruit pies, chocolate pies, even crack pies! There’s nothing like pie!

I have used local ingredients. We have not so many fruits that do well in pies in Japan, buy sweet potatoes are ideal.


栗黄金 kurikogane (chestnut yellow gold sweet potato)

The baked potato becomes colorful.

Yuzu, the Japanese aromatic citrus.


As the potato is naturally very sweet, no added sugar here. I approximated the amounts for the dough.


I’ve prepared it like a flaky pie dough.


Flowers instead of a top or a net.
