I love sweet potatoes!
Growing up my Mama would make me sweet potato pie every Thanksgiving, it was a birthday treat. She did that until she passed away. I would make pumpkin pies and she made the sweet potato pies, what I would do to taste one of her pies again, she passed in 2019. This year enjoy your family and friends making memories and cooking together. I hope you will give this recipe a try and make it a favorite in your family.
