Cream Cheese Sweet Potato Pie Recipe


I grew up with traditional sweet potato pie always on the table during the Thanksgiving season. When Pillbury came out with a cold version that included cream cheese I knew I would love it for hot Autumn days. This is one of my favorite pies and since today is one of those hot day, this pie will be on my table for tonight's supper.
