As a southern lady, I grew up on sweet potato pie. My maternal grandmother would purchase the frozen pies (which were pretty good) and my paternal grandmother would make them from scratch (which were pretty great). I will admit to not knowing the 1st thing about making one, but they are still one of my favorite desserts.
Before you ask, yes I am well aware of Ms. Patti’s sweet potato pie and was tempted to look for one. However they are made with nuts and I am highly allergic. Until I find an alternative, I will make myself content by listening to Ray Charles and James Taylor sing about Sweet Potato Pie.
