Sweet Potato Pie

['1 1/3 cups all purpose flour', '1 tablespoon sugar', '1/2 teaspoon salt', '6 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces', '2 tablespoons chilled solid vegetable shortening, cut into small pieces', '3 tablespoons (or more) ice water', '2 large red-skinned sweet potatoes (yams; 13/4 pounds)', '1 cup (packed) golden brown sugar', '1 cup whipping cream', '3 large eggs', '1 teaspoon vanilla extract', '3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon', '1/4 teaspoon ground mace', '1/4 teaspoon salt', '1 large egg white', 'beaten to blend']

Mix flour, sugar, and salt in processor. Add butter and shortening; using on/off turns, cut in until mixture resembles coarse meal. Drizzle 3 tablespoons ice water over mixture. Process until moist clumps form, adding more ice water by teaspoonfuls if dry. Gather dough into ball; flatten into disk. Wrap in plastic; chill until firm, about 30 minutes.
Roll out dough on floured surface to 14-inch round. Transfer to 9-inch-diameter glass pie dish. Fold overhang under. Crimp edges decoratively. (Crust can be made 2 days ahead. Cover; chill.)
Pierce potatoes with fork. Cook in microwave on high until tender, about 6 minutes per side. Cut open; cool completely. Scrape potato flesh into bowl; mash until smooth. Measure enough potato puree to equal 1 1/2 cups.
Position rack in bottom third of oven; preheat to 400°F. Place puree in large bowl. Whisk in brown sugar and next 6 ingredients. Brush crust with beaten egg white. Transfer filling to crust.
Bake pie until filling is puffed around edges and set in center, about 45 minutes. Transfer to rack; cool. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover; refrigerate.)
