    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    The absolute best sweet potato pie recipe around. I have been making this forever. It has a fantastic flaky, melt-in-your-mouth cornmeal crust, with a delicious streusel topping...this is well-worth the effort to prepare, and actually is not hard to make, just takes a bit of time.

      This pie was delicious! The cornmeal crust was very flaky, and was a bit hard to roll I just pat it in the pan and it worked out great! This pie was so good cold the next day. In case anyone is wondering, 2 cups of sweet potatoes is 1 large yam/sweetpotato. I can't believe I am the first to rate this! Thanks for posting.
