Southern Sweet Potato Pie

This Southern Sweet Potato Pie has been served at our family gatherings since before I was born, and oh my that's a very long time. We grow sweet potatoes in our garden every year so we really enjoy the home grown potatoes for this recipe. Roasting the sweet potatoes enhance this rich and very flavorful  pie making it one of our favorites, from our garden to the table!

  2. This looks SO SOOOOO good!!! I'm the only one in our home that appreciates any kind of sweet potatoes- so sad!!!! I'm wondering how bad it'd be if I made the pie just for myself!! :)
