"This is a very unique sweet potato pie recipe, given to me by my mother. It's quite sweet, with a lighter texture than your typical sweet potato pie. If you like sweet potatoes and you have a sweet tooth, this one's for you!"

I'm the submitter of the recipe. I actually submitted this 6 years ago, and I've made some changes in how I make this now. I usually use cane syrup instead of corn syrup, and depending on how sweet my potatoes are, I cut back a bit on the sugar. The pie is not heavy on a spice flavor due to my preference (I like the sweet poatoes to take center stage), but you can certainly up the spice amount if you prefer a spicier flavor. You can also use pumpkin pie spice; I just like the apple pie spice better. I don't recommend using canned sweet potatoes as the fresh gives a much better flavor, but you can certainly use those in a pinch. As the notes states, this is a very sweet pie, and it's definitely not low calorie. Great for a thanksiving or Christmas table, because it's definitely an indulgence.
Great recipe! I made 3 pies on Thanksgiving and Im making one today! They were soo sweet and goooood! My kids, and husband loved it. This taste just like my dads recipe....from Virginia! :)
What a great recipe-it set up well, and my husband loved it!
This recipe is quick and VERY easy. My first time making a sweet potato pie and it was delicious. I didn't have corn syrup but followed the recipe otherwise. For those wanting spice, I added more vanilla and a tsp of cinnamon and found it enhanced the pie nicely.
This was a great recipe, in my opinion it was a little too sweet, but still very good. I also chose to use pumpkin pie spice compared to apple pie spice.
Tried this recipe for Thanksgiving 2013 and everyone loved it. It does take longer than 50 minutes to set but other than that its a great recipes. I recommend it to everyone.
