Sweet Potato Pie

Sweet Potato Pie

Sweet potato pie is like music to my ears. Brian never had sweet potato pie, so I needed to make him one. He’s had sweet potato fries, mashed sweet potatoes but never a sweet potato pie!

Sweet Potato Pie

This pie is a family tradition in my house. Every fall around Thanksgiving, my family would make me bake sweet potato pies for days. I can’t tell you how many of these pies I’ve made in my life. Even today, my siblings call me up every Thanksgiving asking for sweet potato pies. Last year, I brought 5 pies and in a matter of minutes, they were demolished. A sweet potato pie pretty easy to make, and does not require a lot of time, and more importantly, it’s delicious! Because I’m used to baking pies in bulk, the recipe below yields 3 pies. Divide as needed. Here is a recipe that will be sure to make everyone wanting more…
