I don't know why some people are afraid to try sweet potato pie even though they love pumpkin pie. If anyone is unsure about whether they should try it I encourage them by asking, "Which do you like better--squash or mashed potatoes?" Works every time. It has nearly the same flavor as a pumpkin pie.
