Alexis's Sweet Potato Pie
This scrumptious sweet-potato pie, created by Martha's daughter, Alexis, strikes all the right balances: its consistency is dense but not heavy, and its flavor sweet but not saccharine. When buying fresh sweet potatoes, choose small- to medium-size examples with smooth, unbruised skins. Martha made this recipe on episode 705 of Martha Bakes.
