sweet potato pie
ok the holidays are coming up, would love a good old fashioned seweet potato pie recipe, and I know there are a bunch floating around here, so sure would appreciate the sharing and if anyone wants some recipes, I also got a bunch, A-Z
thanks for the help[
also do you think combining acorn squash with apples would make an acceptable pie? Got some acorn squash cooked but not enough for a pie so I thought I'd try adding enough apples to make enough to fill a pie...
Probably use apple pie spices?? Thanks for any more-informed-than-I input.
Met a girl from Haiti at University. She made sweet potato casserole. Best I've ever eaten. She added bananas and orange juice to hers.
I make one that is wonderful. It is meant as a dessert rather than a side dish. Here is the link http://allrecipes.com/recipe/sweet-p...ie/detail.aspx happy baking
I bet you could use the squash and apples but would need a little thickener, (flour /arrow root) as the apples have a lot
of juice this time of year.
My grandmother made sweet potato pie with the same recipe that she used for fresh pumkin pie. It worked fine. Her recipe called for x cups of boiled, strained,and riced pumkin or sweet potato. After that everything was the same.
Got this recipe from a dear friend.

I got this recipe from a nice lady in her 70's in 1983. Been a favorite for years. You will. Love it for it calls for no milk. Let me know after you make and eat a piece.

I use the recipe on the Libby's Canned Pumpkin, substituting the amount of pumpkin with the sweet potato. Never had one fail yet comes out perfect every time.
