unbaked pie crust
cooked and mashed sweet potatoes
This pie is fantastic. I made no exceptions to the recipe - using real butter and real buttermilk. I did, however add 1 tsp. of pumpkin pie seasoning. My husband, brother in law, and father in law all three loved it, and they were raised down south on grandma's recipe - very hard to impress! Everyone else raved too, and I ended up having to make more! It was not just my first sucessful sweet potato pie, it was the first time to impress my father in law! Thanks for this flawless recipe!
I followed the recipe perfectly but the pie was too sweet (i'd lower sugar to 3/4 of a cup) and was EXTREMELY mushy.
I modified this a little. Used caned yams, 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice and half white sugar and half brown.
Because it takes while to cook I also lined the crust with aluminum foil and removed it 10 minutes prior.
Turned out wonderful!
I made this pie with Splenda, and it turned out great.
I followed the recipe to a "T"...snuck a bite of the filling and couldn't wait to try it cooked! My husband said this is the best sweet potato pie he has ever had and I have to agree.
I baked two of these pies for a dinner we are having at our church for boys from a boys home...I bet the boys will feel as if they are having some of their mom's cooking. They won't be home for the holidays but my prayer is that they will feel like home came to them. Thank you.
OH MY GOD? THIS IS THE BEST SWEET POTATO PIE YOU WILL EVER PUT IN YOUR MOUTH. EVEN MY SON WHO WILL NOT EAT SWEET POTATOES, COULD NOT GET ENOUGH OF IT. I DID THOUGH ADD A LITTLE PUMPKIN PIE SPICE(BUT JUST A LITTLE) OTHER THAN THAT DO NOT CHANGE A THING.
This recipe is exceptional! I tripled the recipe for a luncheon at work and everyone loved the results. My modifications to the recipe: I used almond extract in place of the vanilla, 1/4 tsp. nutmeg, mixed 1/2 brown and 1/2 white sugar, & 1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice. I will make this recipe again and again. THANKS for sharing.
I found this recipe last night, tried it today at work and everyone loved it. Now I will prepare it for 64 for our Black History Meal at work. It was easy, and the cooking time was accurate. The flavor as written was terrific and I also added nutmeg and cinnamon to one pie and they loved that too.
