Sweet Potato Pie: The new king of your holiday table in 2018

Jump to recipe

Today we’re making Sweet Potato Pie!

There are many recipes out there, but we like this one from Nicole Rucker because of its rustic take on it with a wide lattice and chunky, interesting texture. It was our first time cooking a sweet potato pie and were surprised at how easy it was to make. We liked the texture and flavor a lot better than perfectly smooth one-crust pies because of the “bite variation” this recipe offers.

The colors got a little goofy on the back half of the video – sorry about that! I was having some trouble exporting the file.
