Sweet Potato Cream Cheese Pie

For me, Fall is all about sweet potatoes, and the many ways to eat them. 

Such as:

Sweet Potato Cheesecake

Sweet Potato Cream Cheese Bread

And the latest dessert. . . . Sweet Potato Cream Cheese Pie!

I made this very same pie last year for Christmas dinner, and it was such a hit, that I’ve promised to never make another sweet potato pie unless it has the cream cheese with it. And I haven’t 🙂

In fact, I’ve already made this pie five times this Fall, and I’ll most likely add a sixth and seventh time before long.
