    sistabarista1's Note:

    This recipe is a staple at every family get together. My Dad has been making it as long as I can remember. It can be served room temperature, or I like it chilled and topped with whipped cream or if you're in a devilish mood....vanilla ice cream! Don't get too hung up on the is a very forgiving recipe that allows for some variables depending on taste. ENJOY!

      This pie is wonderful! Sweet and rich and spicy. Your method of removing the "strings" from the sweet potatoes worked very well and my filling was smooth and creamy. I made 3 small mini pies and had just the right amount of filling for that. Thanks for sharing a great recipe! Made for Spring Pick-A-Chef 2011
