Simple Sweet Potato Pie

Lori Tullis


This recipe belonged to my Grandmother. She was a simple home cook. She did not care for "spicy" spices, so when she created her sweet potato pie, all you tasted was the yummy sweet potato. This recipe has been a family favorite for over 50 years and it continues to be loved by the newer generations.
