Blame it on the weather or something else but I have been having this really bad craving for sweet potato pie. I wasn't quite sure of what type of sweet potato pie I want to make. Do I want to try making a southern style sweet potato pie or something lighter.
There is nothing wrong with a southern style sweet potato pie except for the amount of sugar, butter and condensed milk that is in it. Now, I really want a pie that is just sweet enough and light. Pie shouldn't be a forbidden food. If done right, I am pretty sure it is alright to eat pie at least once a month. *Fingers crossed*
The next thing to decide on is whether to make my own filing or buy a canned pie filing from the store.
Now, if you are like me, penny pinchers out there, a pound of sweet potato is $0.69 while a 15oz can of sweet potato is $1.39. Well, I'll let you do the math.
The filing taste good. The texture is a little stringy because of the sweet potato. Still good.
