I have made this recipe for years. There is none better - or so I've been told by some serious and knowing Creole cooks. And while some may say "Well, it sounds just like a pumpkin pie recipe", they are sorely mistaken. This, my friends, is a Creole Sweet Potato Pie.

This is the way to eat your vegetables!

Vegetables and ice cream - what a wonderful combo... Please try this recipe - and don't tell your diners (kids - family) what it is until after they tell you how delicious it was.

Step away from that can! - take the extra minutes to boil and peel your hand-selected yams or sweet potatoes. This was one of Chef Austin's greatest gifts to me and I have done well over the years by it.

    This is another of your wonderful recipes I will be trying. I LOVE sweet potato pie. I made one at Christmas, but as sad as I am to admit it, it was not what I had hoped for!! Maybe this one is. Thanks, Amos , for your generosity in sharing.
