Sweet potato pies are hands-down a favorite treat at our house. But I had never thought of using regular bakers in pies until I was flipping through The Blue Grass Cook Book from 1904. The Potato Pie is the Pie of the Month for the Fall issue of Pastry Sampler Journal, and when I was scouting different recipes to include (including my own) I found pies made with mashed potatoes. I'm include one here as it is always interesting to see what tastes were like way back then.
