Sweet Potato Pie

There is nothing more nostalgic to me than a piece of delicious sweet potato pie. As you can tell from the name of my blog and the picture in the background of me as a child holding a tiny sweet potato pie my grandma made for me, it has always been a special dessert in my family. This recipe was passed down through the generations and it’s so easy that it’s worth a try. The only part that takes a bit more work than usual is that it requires fresh sweet potatoes baked in the oven instead of canned ones. Just trust us, you will taste the difference!
