Goldilocks Sweet Potato Pie


"She tasted the first sweet potato pie, 'This is too grainy! Like mashed potatoes in a pie crust.' She tasted the second pie, 'This is too plain, like pumpkin pie, only less so.' She tasted the third pie 'Ahh, this is just right. Strong sweet-potato flavor, but still a nice texture. Yum. Yum. Yum.'"

I followed the recipe to the letter. Great texture and taste. Will be making this during the holidays and beyond. It is so much better than pumpkin pie.
