“Mom's sweet potato pies are a vital part of my family's Thanksgiving. This is a recipe she inherited from her mother. The blender incorporates ingredients so well that this makes a creamy pie beyond belief. Mom prefers her sweet potato pie without any spices at all, but I usually add pinch or two of the spices listed below. Also, in lieu of the glaze, we opt for a creamy refrigerated whipped topping, but I've included glaze directions as an option.”

  3. Pour equally into the 2 pie shells.
  4. Place in 350°F oven; bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or till filling is set.
