Traditional Southern-style sweet potato pie. This is my mother's recipe, but she's Mimi to my kids, so in our house we call this dish Mimi's sweet potato pie. It's delicious right out of the oven, at room temp, or right out of the refrigerator.

I love this pie! I made a few changes but it's mostly the same exactly. I added 2T of spiced rum, salted butter, 1T of pumpkin pie spice (next time I'll just use nutmeg). I steamed the sweet potatoes, too. I love the rum/butter taste in it. This is the best sweet potato pie I've ever eaten! (I've never made or eaten one before) It's just spectacular. Read More
