Sweet Potato Pie Recipe By John Kanell | Preppy Kitchen

Who can wait until Thanksgiving to have a sample of this delicious piece? As John Kanell describes his easy sweet potato pie recipe is “silky smooth” and packed with tremendous flavor. Flaky homemade crust encases a pie filling ripe in sweet potato, brown sugar, and seasonal spices. Whether it be for Thanksgiving or any other holiday of the year, this dessert is sure to be a hit!

Normally, I’m not personally a fan of sweet potato pie but two people that I love are. I made this for Christmas Dinner and the crowd of 20 thought it was the best they’d had. I loved it.
