How to make the best sweet potato pie ever!

This is the recipe that started ILikeYouLook! This video idea actually started because after years of telling my family step by step how to make this pie for the holidays, I figured that it was time to show them really quickly in a video form. So for fun, my daughter and I filmed this, edited it and uploaded it to my personal Facebook account. Just on a whim, my daughter uploaded it to YouTube and we forgot about it. This was 7 years ago!  And the rest is history!
