Sweet Potato Pie My Eye

I lived in the deep south for over 20 years and have tasted hundreds of sweet potato pies. This is the best recipe I've tried. It's the only one I make now. I find the flavor more complex if you bake the sweet potatoes instead of boiling them. Baking them in a slow oven until they begin to caramelize really brings out their flavor.
