Mariane Zemil’s sweet potato pie

Most people have the option to eat whatever they want during the holiday season. For those who have restrictions, this gluten-free sweet potato pie will do in a pinch. This pie has a chewy crust and a sweet, soft filling which are complemented perfectly by the nice touch of cinnamon.

Ms. Zemil, a world language teacher, created a special recipe for this sweet potato pie due to dietary restrictions of her family.

“Several years ago my husband went vegan, and I have a milk allergy as well, so we were looking for recipes that everyone in the family could eat,” Ms. Zemil said.

She and her daughter also have celiac disease, so she took matters into her own hands and adapted other recipes of the pie. Now, she is able to share this special pie despite the many restrictions her family has.
