Brown Butter Sweet Potato Pie

Have you ever had sweet potato pie? Sometimes when I mention sweet potato pie to people they look at me like I’m some sort of crazy person and say things like “sweet potato in a dessert!?” To that all I have to say is; Hell YES sweet potato in a dessert!

But I also have to clarify that when I say “sweet potato” what I really mean is yam. Because when you go to a typical grocery store yams are labelled as the ones with an orange interior (and this is what you want for this recipe), while sweet potatoes have a white interiors (not what you want for this recipe.)

I’m not sure why we as a culture decided to collectively confuse ourselves by swapping the names around when it comes to things like “sweet potato fries” or  “sweet potato casserole” or “sweet potato pie” But let’s be honest saying “Yam Pie”just doesn’t have the same effect… amiright?

Happy Friday lovelies!

So I have to start today’s post off with an apology and say that I am so sorry that I was never able to get this recipe posted in time for Canadian Thanksgiving, :(:( {seriously disappointed in myself}, but I figured better late than never right?

So if you are a fellow Canadian and in need of a reason to bake up a Pumpkin Pie {not that you ever really need a reason for pumpkin pie} perhaps a Friendsgiving dinner is in order? I have to confess that I have been toying with the idea of hosting a Friendsgiving at our place just so that I could justify baking up a couple of pumpkin pies…. Could this need to get my holiday pumpkin pie fix, disguised as a gathering of friends be the work of an evil, pie hungry genius? Possibly…

Truth be told, I have never hosted a Friendsgiving, but I really want to make this a new tradition of ours. Cole and I are always running around on the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend to attend alllll of our family Thanksgiving dinners, that we never get a chance to enjoy time with friends – which I find to be a shame since my friends are one of the things that I am most thankful for in my life. So I wont really know what I’m doing when I host this Friendsgiving –  but one thing I do know is that  it will be complete with a homemade pumpkin pie… so basically it will be amazing :p.
