THIS IS SOOO GOOD. I can't stop eating it. I've never really liked pumpkin pie but this is 10 stars. I used baked yams (1-1/2 lbs = 2 medium size yams - perfect for 2 cups), cut back sugar in the pie to 1/2 cup (1/4 cup white, 1/4 cup brown) and 1/3 cup brown sugar in the topping. I also used pumpkin pie spice (1 teaspoon) and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Yam mixture seemed very runny when I put it in the pie crust but cooked up nicely. Watch the topping carefully under the broiler - cooks quickly. The ''Butter Flaky Pie Crust" was easy and delicious too. This pie IS NOT low cal but it doesn't have corn syrup or sweetened condensed milk (YEAH). You could probably make it with Splenda, egg beaters and fat-free half & half and it would still be good. My compliments to Lorrie ... this pie will definitely be on my holiday table!
I loved the topping to this pie The pie wasn't sweet enough for me BUT the topping is the best yet
Very smooth and creamy. I did add a dash of vanilla extract and 1/4 tsp. nutmeg to the recipe. Absolutely wonderful.
I used a deep pie crust though, and still found that I had a lot of mixture left over when finished.
The pie filling was really good, Too much sugar for the pecan topping!
I would make this agian with less sugar for the topping! This is a great pie for begginers really easy to follow.
Wonderful, my first ever attempt at a pie! The only mistake I made was when the recipe called for the sugar to be creamed together with the other ingred. I added the brown sugar to it... OOPS! Next time I won't put the brown sugar in the pie... I'll save it for the top.
I no longer fix "regular" sweet potatoes in the casserole with marshmellows on top...this is the only way my family will eat them now...
The best one I have found yet!
Great served warm, even keeps well and reheats for a couple of days.
Our two year old loved it and that says a lot!
This is absolutely the BEST sweet potato pie I've ever had!!! I did reduce the brownsugar in the topping to 1/3 cup and it was just perfect. Everyone loved it at thanksgiving and is already requesting I bake it for Christmas too.
