    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.

    Sweet Potato Pie Recipe

    Mary,

    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.

    Sweet Potato Pie

    2 1/2 cups fresh mashed cooked sweet potatoes
    3/4 stick butter
    3/4 cup white sugar
    2 eggs
    1 - tablespoon self rising flour
    1 - teaspoon cinnamon
    1 - 9" deep dish frozen pie shell

    First remove the pie shell from the freezer to thaw as you mix the ingredients. Boil sweet potatoes until tender. Peel and smash. Add butter, sugar cinnamon, and flour. Add the eggs. Pour all into the 9" pie shell. Cook at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Let sit for an hour before slicing.

    Optional: A scoop of cool whip or ice cream put on top is delicious with this.

    ENJOY!!!!!!! Pass it on!!!!!!!

    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.
