Frankie Manning was many things -- champion lindy hopper, inventor of the airstep, postal worker, Ambassador of Swing... and lover of sweet potato pie.
So in his honor, for Frankie Month, we assembled some of the finest sweet potato pie recipes we could find (plus one bundt cake).
- Stephen S. shared with us on Twitter "My favorite: sweet potato pie w/ a crunchy pecan topping, à la Dinosaur BBQ...". (via the New York Times)
- From lover-of-all-things-in-pie-form Michael Y. comes this recipe for "Mrs. Painter’s Pumpkin Pi" (subbing in sweet potato for the pumpkin). (Via Log Cabin Cooking)
- Cori B. recommends this Southern style sweet potato pie recipe. (via I Heart Recipes.)
- And lastly Hanah Y. shares with us the "Spiced Sweet Potato Bundt Cake" which wasn't really what we asked for, but does look delicious. (via Epicurious.)
