A fellow member asked me if I have a recipe for sweet potato pie, so here it is for all to try and hopefully enjoy.

Every holiday, is a sweet treat in my family. We always have sweet potato pie. I fooled around a bit with this one and made it my own.

2 Tbsp

1/8 tsp

Step-By-Step

1Heat oven to 350 degrees.
