Tomorrow is the first day of fall and I couldn’t be more excited! Fall is my absolute favorite season because of the fashion, cooler temperatures, colorful leaves, and, of course, Thanksgiving! There are certain dishes that I don’t cook all year because they are reserved for my family’s traditional Thanksgiving dinner. One of those dishes is my mom’s sweet potato pie.
I can remember standing in the kitchen watching her prepare her signature pies every year, waiting for the moment when she would finally let me help. I was usually placed on prep duty, gathering the ingredients together, preheating the oven—you know, the small things until I was ready to take on the major tasks like adding ingredients and mixing.
Now that I’m older and I prepare all of the dishes for Thanksgiving dinner each year, I’m sure to never leave off Mama Jackie’s Southern Sweet Potato Pie. Before sharing this recipe, I asked her if she wouldn’t mind and she gave me the go-ahead to share with you guys.
So if you’re looking for the perfect dessert that says “hello, fall,” look no further!
