Patti LaBelle Sweet Potato Pie
By Todd Wilbur
When YouTuber James Wright sang and swooned over Patti Labelle's Sweet Potato Pie in an exuberant November 2015 video, it went viral, racking up a quick 5 million views. The sudden popularity of the video led to a mad run on the pies, and stores around the country were sold out for weeks.
Now, no one who craves the rich goodness of a delicious sweet potato pie will be forced to go Patti-less for long, with this hack that re-creates everything good about her pie. And the one bad thing about her pie—that it's too small—is fixed here with a finished pie that is about twice as big as the store version. You won't find this recipe anywhere else, including Patti's cookbook, which makes a sweet potato pie very different from the bestselling pie that was sold out in stores.
