Damn fine pie

Here’s a picture of Art’s famous sweet potato pie. He baked 10 pies for Christmas (for the neighbors, his office Christmas party and for the American Indian Education program in our school district). The pies are diet-friendly, filled with 16 eggs, 2 pounds of butter, a quart of heavy cream, 5 cups of sugar, 4 cups of brown sugar and a generous helping of bourbon (in the pies and the cook). OK, so they’re not so diet-friendly. But the pies do have sweet potatoes and nuts. Doesn’t that count for something? Jeez. For those who have asked, here is the recipe.
