I have been cooking up a storm, much thanx to Hijabi Apprentice for sharing her wonderful Sweet Potato Pie recipe with me! The recipe is easy to follow, easy to make, and tastes very yummmyyy! (I shall be making this again, insha'Allah) Reminds me a little of pumpkin pie. I decided to add a graham cracker crust, and I found a recipe for Maple Cream to add to the top (anyone lucky enough to have Maple flavouring will know how good this is!!!)
Here is the recipe from Hijabi Apprentice.
