Sweet Potato Pie with Maple Whipped Cream

I don’t know how things are in your house, but around here, come Thanksgiving, PIE becomes a hot topic of conversation.  We take our Thanksgiving menu very seriously, and nothing is more important to the success of the meal than the finale!  Our choices are usually the classics–Pumpkin, Apple and Pecan.

But this year, I wanted to try my hand at sweet potato.   Maybe I’m just missing the South!  But the reality is that this deliciously flavor-packed pie is the perfect way to mix things up just a little, but still keep all the flavor of fall. Give it a try and see!

    Sweet potato pie sounds amazing; I tried it once but I used canned sweet potatoes. Fresh potatoes must make a big difference, because I wasn’t as impressed as I thought I would be. And I LOVE sweet potatoes. I think I’ll give your recipe a go 🙂

    I started making sweet potato pie a couple years ago for Thanksgiving. Be careful because after you make it, it becomes a requirement. I think everyone who tries it likes it better than pumpkin.

    Could whip cream be chilled until ready to serve?
