If you like Sweet Potato Pie you usually aren’t a Pumpkin Pie fan. If you are a fan of Pumpkin Pie you usually don’t like Sweet Potato Pie. Seeing as I am an equal opportunity dessert lover, I am a fan of both pumpkin and sweet potato pie. While I have stated that I love anything Pumpkin, I do also love anything sweet potato. Pumpkin Pie goes with Cool Whip and Sweet Potato Pie with vanilla ice cream!
The best sweet potato pie I have ever had was in Sacramento, California. Gloria, who cooks the best in everything she makes, whipped up the simplest looking pie. I was reluctant to eat it but did out of courtesy…OMGoodness! That is one of the best eating days of my life. The pie was out of this world. And although I never got the recipe I have tried to recreate it many times. This is as close as I have come…although not perfect.
Delicious Rating: I remember Gloria baked her potatoes but this recipe calls for boiling. Next time I will try the other way. It is a good pie. I use a 9-inch deep dish pan and the filling was just perfect. The crust is an easy no-knead-no-roll pie crust. Easy recipes are my thing of course! I will keep this pie recipe on hand for future use. I am submitting this to Cook.Eat.Delicious-Desserts! this month hosted by ChezCayenne.blogspot.com!

Doesn’t shredded butter look pretty?
I know this is an odd way to make pie crust but it works and tastes delicious for a filled pie like this.
