Perfect Sweet Potato Pie
Tuesday, November 17, 2009
The one item I look forward to during the holidays is sweet potato pie. My mom was my source and until I joined Spark, she'd make me a whole pie which I'd bring home and polish off in a day. When I started eating better, I'd go to her house and get one slice at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
This year, I have to make my own pies and my grandson asked me to make him one the other day. I made three pies and got them out of the house while still warm from the oven. Although this recipe didn't turn out the way I like my pie, I would have cut a slice every time I walked into the kitchen.
If I'm going to have only two slices of pie a year, they have to be right. So I need to perfect my recipe. My grand children and coworkers will be the beneficiaries of my experiments until I get it the way I like.
