This is a fool proof pie. Made with a can of sweet potatoes and another of my favorite ingredients "sweetened condensed milk", This is a dense, rich and creamy pie- by the way you can make a pumpkin pie using this same recipe too - just change out the Sweet potatoes for 15 oz. can of pumpkin...This recipe is foolproof --promise!
