Sweet Potato Pie

Using boiled sweet potatoes rather than baked ones gives this pie a beautifully vibrant color.Todd Coleman

Mrs. Bonner, who passed away in 2000 at the age of 94, kept a marvelous cafe in Crawfordville, Georgia, population 534. There was just one dessert available—sweet potato pie, which we liked so much that we managed to wrangle the recipe from her. The secret to its especially bright color is the use of boiled sweet potatoes instead of baked. —Jane and Michael Stern, authors of Roadfood.com
