Sweet Potato Pie!

It’s (a warm) winter time here in Nashville, which also means Sweet Potato time! With Christmas right around the corner and holiday cooking on the mind and sweet potatoes in our aisle we thought we would whip up a delicious holiday pie!

There are few things less comforting than a pie waiting to be devoured after a long day of opening gifts and eating that huge Christmas feast! This Sweet Potato pie is sure to hit the spot! It’s always nice to utilize the produce the season is giving us too! Not to mention, it makes the house smell delicious!
