Watch too much TV? You WORK in TV!

Sweet Potato Pie is good, if you like pumpkin pie, you'll like sweet potato pie. (At least I do...)

This is the recipe my grandma used for sweet potato pie. It tastes so much like pumpkin pie I have a hard time telling them apart.

SWEET POTATO PIE
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. allspice
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. cooked & mashed sweet potatoes
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 c. milk
2 tbsp. butter
1- 9" unbaked pie shell
Mix first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Stir in sweet potatoes. In a seperate bowl, mix eggs, milk and butter until well combined. Add to sweet potato mixture & stir until combined. Pour into pie shell. Bake at 400F for about 40 minutes or until the filling is set.

Thanks, Crewsk, for posting a recipe. I don't make them. My mom makes them, but I really like pumpkin better - it tastes a bit more earthy (not a good description, huh). I suppose one of the reasons is that I've eaten so many sweet potatoes as veggie it never seems right to be a dessert, too.

I'll defer to Crewsk for a recipe, since mine consists of getting in the truck and driving to the bakery to buy one...

Thank you, Crewsk. This is the kind of no-nonsense recipe I like...without a whole bunch of ingreds tossed in - i.e. good food.

Y'all are very welcome! I don't really care for pumpkin or sweet potato pie so I don't make them. My grandma gave me the recipe because she thought I would be the most likely of her grandchildren to make it.

(sniffing the air) Sweet potato pie? mish, you must have some, and right away! Kinda like pumpkin pie, only a little different. When I lived in Memphis, there was some lady who was a friend of one of the word processors who made and sold SPPs for five bucks (also apple pies). THE best!

(notice that I don't have the recipe, but I betcha could find one from Paula Deen some'eres.)

I gotta go with fruit pie as my first love, then cheescake, then a custard pie, like pumpkin. I also like those frozen cream pies that my Dad used to get from the grocers frozen food section.

My all time favorite fruit pie is apple with a lattice top covered by dollops of soft caramel. Second to that is a tie between strawberry/rhubarb, and blueberry.

But I adore most pies. Teh only one I've had that I don't care for is mincemeat.

If you throw pizza, pot pies, meat pies, and pasties in, well then we could go on and on and on.

And I swoon for a great key-lime pie as well.

Ya know, I don't think I have a true favorite. There are so many excellent pies out there. I really like too many flavors to be able to pick one as my all time favorite.

I think you could throw liverwurst into a pie and I'd eat it (of course I like the stuff).
