This recipes was really good. It took only 15 minutes to put together after the Sweet Potato's were cooked. I like the recipe because it was easy and very basic then I added my own personal touch of 1 tsp of lemon extra and and a 1/2 cup of Sugar and the pie came out wonderful.

This recipe has some serious problems. Mashed sweet potatoes - does that mean boil cut-up sweet potatoes or use sweetned from the can. Where's the sugar! I prepared this recipe using actual sweet potatoes and served this pie as my only desert for my Thanksgiving dinner and was disappointed, as well as, my guests. This recipe needs to be removed, corrected or mentioned that it is not an actual dessert before others find error too. Thanks.

When I first tried this, it was awful because it was not sweet. I have since modified it and added 1/2 c. sugar and now it's better. Also, to make it even easier, use one big can (29 oz. I believe) of sweet potatoes. It makes about 2 cups mashed. But otherwise an easy recipe to follow.

I will never use a recipe without reading reviews first, after we made this pie, which is only edible because we put LOTS of whipped cream on it...I realized all reviews said same thing, and I agree, this needs sugar and without it it was TERRIBLE

Lisa H. must have forgotten the sugar ingredient, and I can't believe anyone would make this blindly without sugar then rate it poorly. Add 2/3 cups of sugar and 1/3 cup of brown sugar and it is one of the best and easiest sweet potato pie recipes I have ever made.

This pie needs sugar.

This is no doubt the worst recipe I have ever tried. Where is the sugar? And that may not be all that is wrong with it. I wasted my time and material.

This is the recipe we were looking for! It's brilliantly simple, plain everyday food. Such a refreshing change from all the recipes whose overuse of sugar masks the nice flavors of the other ingredients. This pie is not sweet enough to qualify as "dessert" for lots of folks, but for me it's quite sweet enough and is a very nice way to eat sweet potatoes. For those wondering how much fresh sweet potato will yield the 2 cups of mash needed for each pie, we found that baking about 1 1/4 pound of potatoes per pie was about right. Bake in a covered dish with the skins on, let them cool, peel and mash. We made a whole wheat pastry flour and lard crust that makes this pie a yummy earthy meal in itself.
