Sweet Potatoe Pie My Mom Would Be Proud Of

Sweet potatoe pie has always been my favorite pie.  My mom, like a lot of moms, make a mean sweet potatoe pie.  Of course I would only get it at Thanksgiving time, which was fine with me.  I just recently learned to make a healthy version of sweet potatoe pie.  This sweet potatoe pie is the first addition to my "Southern Cuisine" food that is currently available in my Etsy shop




Hmmm, I wonder if Danielle has fixed that pie for anyone in particular.

I made two sweets and one apple. 

That lattice top is as difficult as it looks.

But the finished product is worth the work.

  5. Anonymous - I apologize. I accidentally erase your comment when I was trying to erase my duplicate comment. But I read it. I am with you on the whole pie deal. I never needed whip cream for my pie, but your way sounds nice and gooey.

  6. DBG - I did use real nutmeg so before I glazed it, even the smell was realistic. I have really started studying the little nuances of food. My immediate thought when I see something (any and everything) is "how can I make that?" When I say everything, I mean everything. Today when I was in the DR office waiting for him, I literally broke down the entire office trying to figure out how to replicate it. From the sink and faucet handles to the chair rail to the molding. I went to a business office several hours later for my mom, and the ten minutes I was there, I had that room broken down and replicated in my head. It is a blessing and a curse, and very tiring to my brain.

  12. D7ana - I keep telling you guys that dolly food is calorie free, but still very delicious.


    Dollz4Moi - Thanks. If I make the food I crave in miniature it almost feels like I had it in real life. Definitely saves on all those unwanted calories.
