A follower requested an easy sweet potato pie recipe for the busy family. I took a couple of days to think over an easy recipe to come up with, consulted with my creative team (my co-workers, family) and I came up with this one bowl recipe. It’s quick, easy, great for a last minute holiday get together, or for the main Thanksgiving dessert, because you will be able to bake it (double it if you want) and forget about it. You can use your time to perfect those mashed potatoes, drink more wine, or just take a quick nap.
My friend and co-worker Melanie came up with the name, so if you hate it, blame her 🙂
