Sweet potato pie

Sweet Potato Pie

This sweet potato pie is festive, flavorful, and pretty. What a great way to eat your vegetables! Make it in a brown rice flour crust for added nutrition and no gluten. 

The filling is adapted from The Fannie Farmer Baking Bookone of my all-time favorite cookbooks.
