Sweet Potato Sour Cream Pie

Sweet Potato Sour Cream Pie

Sometimes things just work out. I like when that happens. I was cleaning out my freezer, and came across a pie crust I had frozen. My favorite recipe makes two crusts, but I don’t always need the second one, so I freeze one for later. I was thinking of making a quiche, but a bag of sweet potatoes inspired me to make a pie. As I rooted through the fridge for the rest of the ingredients, I came across a carton of sour cream I had opened a few days ago. I normally use milk in my sweet potato pie, but decided sour cream would work just as well. Plus, I didn’t have any immediate plans for the sour cream. I was very happy with how it came out. In fact, I think I like it even better than the old version.
