Sweet Potato Pie

"As a teenager, my mother would make a whole Sweet Potato Pie only for me—that is how much I loved Sweet Potato Pie. My best friends Kim Gagne and Emilian White would have a sweet potato pie ready for me whenever I entered their home on Christmas Eve. There was never a doubt in their minds what would make me happy.

"You have heard me rave about Peach Cobbler, but Sweet Potato Pie took my waistline from 34 to 36 inches. Despite the weight gain I have not stopped eating sweet potato pie. Please don't be shocked if you see me walking down the street eating a slice of sweet potato pie like it’s a pizza.

"When I make this dessert I use Bruce's Sweet Potato Pie Filling. If you are seeking perfection in your baking with no chance of error please follow these instructions."
