  1. Hi Darius,
    I’ve just reviewed the ingredients for your sweet potato pie cheesecake. Let me say that I was extremely surprised. I’m in my 60’s, from North Carolina, which the sweet potato pie is it’s state desert, and have always boasted about my grandma’s sweet potato pie being the best I’ve ever tasted and I’ve tasted a lot. She put an ingredient in hers that I’ve never found anyone else’s. For me, this made hers always stand out above the rest. Although, you use the same ingredients with one exception in yours and a few others in hers, but the ingredient that make hers stand alone is the lemon. So kudos to this pie. I will give it a try.
