Sweet Potato Pie Mrs. Bonner, who passed away in 2000 at the age of 94, kept a marvelous café in Crawfordville, Georgia, population 534. There was just one dessert available—sweet potato pie, which we liked so much that we managed to wangle the recipe from her. The secret to its especially bright color is the use of boiled sweet potatoes instead of baked.
Cranberries and pears combine to create a brilliant red pie filling that strikes a palate-pleasing balance between tart and sweet. All you need to create the lattice pattern for the top crust is a 3/4-inch square cookie cutter.

Lemon Cream Pie by Martha Stewart. Try it with Greek Yogurt instead of sour cream. Gelatin stabilizes the whipped cream so it stays firm on the pie when made ahead. If you plan to serve the pie soon after making it, you can omit the gelatin.
