Easy But Oh So Good Sweet Potato Pie

Sweet Potato Pie was one of the first things my Mama taught me how to bake!  So I’ve been in-love with sweet potato pie for a very long time!  And let’s not even talk about the next day slice of sweet potato pie OMG it’s like the flavors just have time to settle and well um just um well turn into pure goodness!!  After I made this one for pictures and posting, I realized just how much Hubby and the kids love it as well.  That pie was gone in 2 days!  I went in the fridge for a slice and it was no where to be found!  I was hurt because I was all ready for my sweet potato love but felt incredible at the same time because it meant my recipe was a hit!  Hope you enjoy just as much (and don’t forget to share the recipe love)!

oh yeah baby!
