I finally made my sweet potato pie today, ahem... 4 days after Thanksgiving. LOL! Why? Because I already bought the sweet potato and every time I opened the refrigerator, it has been screaming at me to bake it. Oh well, it is the season for pie so let's have some pies before I have no mood to bake pie anymore. Therefore, I will have another one of my favorite pies coming up. But have to wait until we finish this pie first, got to do it one at a time.
I made everything from scratch, even the crust. Home made crust is so much better than the frozen pie crust, so even as lazy as I am, I just have to make my own pie crust. I guess a bonus now is I own a food processor, so it's way easier to make the crust, just let the food processor does its' job. While the pie dough resting in the refrigerator, I will prepare the sweet potato pie filling.
This is my favorite recipe that I have been using for years. It has never failed me and I totally loved it. I got the recipe from Allrecipe.com so click here for the recipe. Oh, I added 1 Tbsp. of cornstarch into the filling to thicken it more. Serve with whipped cream on the side. Little Edda totally loved it and always requested two pieces for herself!
