Albert Einstein’s Sweet Potato Pie Recipe

Sweet Potato Pie is a great alternative or accompaniment to Pumpkin Pie at Thanksgiving. This pie is a no-bake pie recipe that is to remain chilled. The recipe is moderate to easy. And well, if you were Albert Einstein, it’d be REALLY easy! Of course, he hated school, and probably loathed Home Economics..
