In keeping with our Thanksgiving For One theme, today I’m bringing you an ultra creamy Sweet Potato Pie. I seem to be on some kind of a pie-making kick these days. With the holidays right around the corner, I’ve been in such a pie-baking mood. I’m just having too much fun transforming our family’s favorite holiday recipes and desserts into single serving portions.
Although the traditional Pumpkin Pie will always have a special place in my heart for Thanksgiving, I think there’s also room for sweet potato pie.
