Recipe: Sweet Potato Chess Pie



It’s almost Thanksgiving and boy are the streets crowded! I headed to the mall yesterday to pick up a few things and I could barely get down the road, geesh! Where it usually takes me 3 to 5 minutes tops, took me about 15 minutes, yikes! It’s ok though, it will be over soon lol. I saw this yummy looking Sweet Potato Chess Pie recipe on the internet and I wanted to share it with you. I know I am missing my godmother’s sweet potato pie back home, it was the best, sigh!
