sweet potato pie

Sweet potato pie is a true Southern tradition.  It may look a lot like pumpkin pie, but it’s completely different.   It’s a bit denser and has a great depth of flavor.  The cinnamon compliments the sweet potato filling but doesn’t overpower it.  I pair this pie with a cinnamon whipped cream – which is probably not very Southern, but a little heavy whipping cream makes everything taste better.

It’s become a tradition to serve this wonderful rendition of sweet potato pie for Thanksgiving and Christmas.   I hope you make this pie for your family, it’s easy to make and there’s something very comforting about this pie.   It’s like a slice of home, complete with  all the love and joy you’d expect from a Southern dessert.

    I’ve heard about it and seen it all over the place but never at a gathering I’ve attended so maybe it is a southern thing. Yours looks very pretty and I’d love to get a nice spoonful or two of that whipped topping yum!!
