Thanksgiving is right around the corner and to me pumpkin pie has always been synonymous with our day to count our many blessings. That is, until I took my first bite of sweet potato pie! Many, many years ago I was a supervisor at a skilled nursing facility and I was working the evening shift on Thanksgiving day. The staff brought in a huge potluck turkey dinner and several sweet potato pies. Those pies were out of this world delicious! Smooth and creamy with just enough sugar to satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth. A hint of cinnamon and nutmeg makes this pie just so yummy. One of the nurses gave me her recipe and I have been baking this pie ever since. In fact, I made another pie two days ago and had a slice for breakfast yesterday. Topped with homemade whipped cream, this is nothing short of amazing!
Here’s what we’ll need.
