Sweet Potato Pie

Sweet potato pie vs pumpkin pie — it’s an age-old debate hashed out around many a Thanksgiving table. Some of the preferences seem to be regional, as those who grew up in the American South can hardly fathom a Thanksgiving feast without a sweet potato pie, while those raised in New England tend to opt for the pumpkin. Lines are drawn around flavors and textures, as well, with many professing that the sweet potato version is naturally sweeter and texturally more custard-like than its pumpkin-filled cousin, which boasts a nuttier flavor and a fluffier texture. No matter where you swing on this pie pendulum, we encourage you to do a bit of taste-testing with this super simple sweet potato pie recipe.
