Sweet Potato Pie

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:
