My mother was the only one I knew who could make wonderful sweet potato pies. This had to have been the recipe she used. My husband and children went wild over them. - Nina Read More

As sweet potato pies go it's OK. You might think with all the butter it's sure to taste amazing, but I've made better recipes before with less butter and they tasted just as good, some even better. Don't egt me wrong it tastes good, but if you want to be health concious there's plenty more spp recipes that are better. May be butter overload. Read More

This made two awesome artery clogging pies...awarded 5 stars by my neighbor on her 98th birthday and my hubby. But there is one very misleading ingredient here...6 sweet potatoes. 6 of the small thin tubers...or 6 of the huge almost football size that I buy locally that are still tender to the skin? I quickly realized that 6 would feed half of our small community and dropped it to 4...then could only get three into my large pot. I weighed them and they came to 3 lbs. So 3 lbs. of sweet potatoes is much more accurate. Those pies sure disappeared quickly and deserved every one of those stars!!! Read More

Perfect! My fellow Americans and I really wanted some thanksgiving pie but it is hard to find ingredients where I live right now. This pie was simple and everything was inexpensive and easy to buy. I also melted some marshmallows on top because my husband insisted. It was delicious! Thank you! Read More
