Sweet Potato Pie



I love sweet potatoes and I love sweet potato pie, but I had never made a sweet potato pie myself. After Thanksgiving I had a ton of sweet potatoes left over. I kind of went sweet potato crazy at the store the night before Thanksgiving because they had sweet potatoes 6 pounds for $1! I ended up with 12 pounds… my husband looked at me like I was losing my mind when I started loaded up the cart with them, but I had a plan… kind of….

After looking for just the right sweet potato pie recipe I found this one and boy I am happy I did! It turned out fantastic! Just perfect!! I am guilty of using a Pillsbury pie crust because I didn’t have time to make one from scratch, but everything else was all me.  If you like sweet potato pie then this is a recipe for you!
