Sweet Potato Pies

Sweet potatoes aren't just for sides. Trade your usual pumpkin pie for a sweet-potato pie this year, or serve them side by side and let guests choose their favorite. The sweet-potato pie is a Southern classic that's creamier than pumpkin pie. And don't worry, you can still top it with whipped cream!

recipe

This scrumptious sweet-potato pie, created by Martha’s daughter, Alexis, strikes all the right balances: Its consistency is dense but not heavy, its flavor sweet but not saccharine, its filling smooth but still somewhat textured. When buying fresh sweet potatoes, choose small- to medium-size examples with smooth, unbruised skins.
