Lois Porter is a friend of mine. She is funny, knows everything, has tremendous patience with children and she bakes a mean sweet potato pie. In fact, Lois has perfected her pie recipe into a multi-use sweet potato pie filling that tastes great as pie (duh!), pancakes, and biscuits. The filling comes in a jar so you pour it and bake it yourself.
Baking a pie is a delicious and easy project with a preschooler (especially if your purchase the pie crust too).
Buy some batter at Berkeley Bowl (in the frozen section near cookie dough) or at Piedmont Grocery.
