You are going to love this real simple sweet potato pie recipe! While pumpkin pie may be traditional for Thanksgiving, there are other alternatives that are just as good. My husband is from Texas where sweet potato pie is a popular dessert throughout the year.

This recipe is very easy to make even though it’s made from scratch. So, if you’re looking for a real simple sweet potato pie recipe, you have come to the right place. Now, this recipe uses a homemade pie crust. But, you can make the pie crust with three ingredients. If you’re not up to making a homemade pie crust, there’s no reason that you can’t use a store-bought pie crust instead. I’m all about keeping recipes easy.

So, this real simple sweet potato pie recipe starts with fresh sweet potatoes. Now, it really does only take a few minutes to peel them and cook them. I promise.

Don’t take the easy way out and start with pre-cooked canned sweet potatoes or yams. The pie recipe won’t taste the same at all.
