When you say sweet potatoes in my house, the gang comes running but when you say sweet potato PIE, well, then you get help in the kitchen!  We love these flavor-packed potatoes and eat them at least once a week.  With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I’m starting to “test drive” a few recipes just to make sure the flavors are right and this pie has made the cut.
 
It’s rich with the warm spice flavors of cinnamon and nutmeg. It also has a creamy texture that goes perfectly with the buttery crust. The everyday ingredients are probably something you already have in your pantry so grab a helper and start making pie! Enjoy!
