The look of this pie screams “Pumpkin”, but it’s a sweet potato pie. It’s a dessert inherited when the yam was studied by George Washington Carver in the 1900’s. Today it is a common dessert that is baked in African-American homes particularly during the holiday season. Thanksgiving is not complete without Mom’s sweet potato pie.
My mother’s recipe
1.Put all the ingredients in a blender, and blend until a thick consistency. Pour mixture into pie shell. Bake in 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes. When pie is stiff and no longer soupy, it will be done. Let cool and put in the refrigerator. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
