"This is the same recipe my family has used for years. We prefer to boil the potatoes instead of bake as another comment suggested. It makes the texture of the pie more smooth and blends the flavors better. "- beyette

dougiedean 2 years agoThis is a straight-forward, no-nonsense, real-deal sweet potato pie. I cut back the sugar slightly ... and it was plenty sweet. People loved it.
