"When I was in my 20s, I tried Sweet Potato Pie for the first time and loved it. A decade later, a coworker gave me a recipe. It is for 2 pies, so plan for that or cut the recipe in half for 1 pie. That was almost 20 years ago and I haven't made it since I first got the recipe. Digging through the recipe box I found the Darla's recipe and plan to make it again next time I'm making pies for family. The recipe calls for store bought pie shells, but you can make your own if you prefer. I even made it once for Passover using a Passover pie crust. Serve with whipped cream or Cool Whip, and refrigerate leftovers."
