This year we’re headed to my parents’ for Thanksgiving and I’m bringing sweet potato pies because mine are the bomb diggity (yeah, you read me right).
However, I’m kind of bummed that I’m only making one thing (you burn a turkey once or a dozen times and suddenly you’re banned from making the main course…) so I’ve decided to mix it up a little. I’ll be making my traditional recipe of course (a recipe that is not only super fantastic, but super secret, so I won’t be divulging it here) but I’ve decided to go the mini pie route as well.
Now before you get all put out, don’t worry, I’ll point you to some pie recipes that you can take out for a twirl. I’m not endorsing them as I haven’t tried them myself (perhaps you missed the bomb diggity claim, I’m not over-stating here peeps, I’ve actually had people place orders for my slammin’ pies) but there’s more than one way to skin a potato and I’m sure it tastes (almost) as good.
Can’t link to recipes without including Food Network’s Version
I’m giving making my own crust another whirl this year. Crust is a touchy beast so I’m trying two recipes this year. One from American Pie (Amazon Affiliate link, from which I’d make a profit if you bought the item through the link) and one from Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook.
More later as I need to get back to baking!
