I had been searching for this recipe for a long time. I had several ladies give me their version. Some were good, most were on the dry side. This one is perfect, you get so much out of this recipe. "WOW two pies" Read More

Thank you for the recipie. My boyfriends mom's makes this. I was nervous to make this last night because I never had it and wasn't sure what to expect. All I have to say it was a BIG hit with my boyfriend. He said it tasted just like mom's. I will be making this again for the holidays. Thank you! Read More

I've never heard of a white potato pie before so I had to try it. I really liked the lemon in it but the texture was just a little bit off maybe that was my own doing. This pie overall was okay but I don't think I'll be making it again. Read More

I was hesitant to try this recipe for several reasons. First two potatoes seemed a most inaccurate measurement and cream plus lemon makes a curdled mess. BUT I had a bag of potatoes that were going to rot so I gave this a try. Instead of using 2 potatoes I mashed up 5 boiled potatoes of various sizes and used 2 cups (which was almost all of it). At least that would have given me a starting point if I had to tweak it. From there on I followed the recipe as written. Turns out that seems to be the exact right amount. These pies came out perfect and everyone liked them. I used the Butter Flaky pie crust from this site and partially baked it before adding the filling. The cream and lemon did curdle a bit when mixing but the baked and cooled (refrigerated) pie came out like a smooth creamy custard and no taste of potato at all. Will make again. Read More
