New to your repertory

Left over sweet potatoes from Thanksgiving had me hunting for a recipe for sweet potato pie. I turned to the Joy and sure enough there it was. It has now become a fave.
Using less sugar than expected, cinnamon, nutmeg and lemon juice, in a butter pat in the pan crust, this pie stayed firm and the crust never sogged out.

If you don't have the Joy of Cooking on your shelf as a standard "go to", I certainly recommend it. (and this pie!)

So, what's new to your dessert repertory this year?

My first husband was a pro chef and had the original Joy of Cooking by Irma Robaeurer. Between her and my husband a 17 y.o. bride learned to cook. And over the years, my mother also was at my side. She made me help her in the kitchen. To this day, I remember all the little things she would do and say when making a meal for the family. And she cooked and baked on a wood burning stove.
