My absolute favorite pie of all time, and the pie I most enjoy during the holidays is the sweet potato pie. I love it because it’s like a mix between dessert and dinner–it’s savory, buttery, but it’s a dessert! A lot of people like to have pumpkin pie during the holidays–it seems to be a tradition in many households. In mine though it is sweet potato pie! I like pumpkin pie–I just don’t love it. Sweet potato pie is much more flavorful in my opinion. I always look forward to a slice, and… I have to be honest with you–I’ve been eating this all day long. Fortunately, the ingredients aren’t too bad, and mostly organic… (excuses, excuses) *grabs Nike’s and water bottle*.
I have tasted many sweet potato pies in my lifetime and most have been thick and dense. That’s all right for some, but I like my sweet potato pie light and fluffy. I like for the potato filling to be the consistency of mousse, and airy! Did I just use airy to describe a food? Anyway, I guarantee that when you taste this pie it will fast become your favorite! Add a little whipped cream, and you will have hard time staying away from the kitchen! Move over pumpkin pie, here is my sweet pie potato recipe:
