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.

    I love my sweet potato pie too. As a matter of fact, in my neck of the woods, I'm famous for it. emoticon

    My recipe (it's really my mom's recipe) makes 3 pies and I always try to get rid of at least 2 of them immediately, because just like you, I'll eat a slice every time I go near it!!

    You'll get it right. But as we all know, only mom makes our favorite dishes the way we like them. BUT GOD! You will get it done. Congrats on not leaving them at home.

    I love sweet potato pie. Although I have cut out sweets, I like to think that some day, I will be able to have a slice of sweet potato pie again. emoticon For now, I will have to live vicariously through you! emoticon
