Now that I’m sharing it, this top secret sweet potato pie recipe isn’t so secret. A few years ago when I first tasted my mother-in-law’s sweet potato pie, I thought I had died and gone to Thanksgiving heaven. It quickly became one of my holiday favorites and I’m a bit possessive over it. Kind of like Joey from Friends was with his french fries. I will even sneak into the kitchen to eat it late at night just to be sure I can get as much as possible before I have to head home. Now that I have the recipe I get to eat it all the time. It’s the same delicious pie but something is a bit different when she makes it. Maybe all those years of practice?
On a side note, don’t sweet potatoes look strange? Not the most attractive root vegetable, but luckily delicious! Also, note the ziploc in the background? That’s the white sugar I forgot about when taking the pic. Warning, do not forget when making the pie, ha!
Here is the final result. The recipe makes two pies. One for guests and one for me. I like to add a dollop of cool whip to mine. Now that’s what I call dinner!
