She tasted the first sweet potato pie, 'This is too grainy! Like mashed potatoes in a pie crust.' She tasted the second pie, 'This is too plain, like pumpkin pie, only less so.' She tasted the third pie 'Ahh, this is just right. Strong sweet-potato flavor, but still a nice texture. Yum. Yum. Yum.'

I use simple recipes as I find where they are complicated they are not that much better. I just made this pie and I will be making this one again and again! It is so flavorful! The only changes I made were using less sugar (3/4 C of sugar) and 5 oz of Evaporated Milk (rather than 1/2 C milk). This is all I had in the house. It truly came out like a Sweet Potato Pie as opposed to the taste of a Pumpkin Pie. I noticed that amazingly enough the recipe is identical to Sweet Potato Pie 1 my next recipe choice. My Fiance' loved the pie as well so no need to fancy it up! Read More

Fantastic! I'll never make pumpkin pie again. Only modification I made was to eliminate the nutmeg. I didn't have any but I thought it would make it taste too much like pumpkin. Increased cinnamon a bit (just rounded the measuring spoon). Also used half Splenda & half sugar. Family loved it and I also took to a work pot luck lunch and they all loved it too. I also used a frozen pie shell but after thawing I put it in the oven for 10 minutes. Kept the bottom from being soggy. Read More

This was the second time I made the pie. It was delicious. Easy to make. Next time I will make homemade crust but other than that; I followed the recipe to the T. Read More

I have an 21 year old grandson who loves pumpkin pie. I tricked him by making this sweet potato pie. I took pictures as I prepared it as proof of what was used. He says he now has a new favorite pie. Read More
