This pie was presented at the East Texas Yamboree booth of the 1996 Folklife Festival and the Senior editor tasted this and proclaimed it "one of the best pies I've ever eaten". The Gilmer, TX folks have served Yam Pie at the booth since the festival began 43 years ago.

My family and friends have loved this pie, too. They always asks for this recipe.
