Sweet potato pie recipes can be traced all the way back to the Renaissance Era, but has especially deep roots in the Southern United States. Family recipes passed down from generation to generation, differing slightly as the years pass. Interestingly enough, most of these recipes were never recorded on paper, but instead just held in minds of the baker.
