Mrs. Sigg's Fresh Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
This recipe is outstanding! Best pumpkin pie I've ever made. I made an all-butter crust from scratch, and followed the rest of the directions perfectly. However, I waited too long to take the foil off the crust, so the pie ended up baking for 1 hr and 10 minutes. It still turned out fine, but I would be sure to take the foil off at 40 minutes as the directions indicate. I also agree with other reviewers -- mix all the ingredients then puree with an immersion blender for a smooth, custardy pie. No way store-bought or canned pumpkin can compete with this. Next time I may try using soy milk instead of evaporated milk just to see how it turns out.

Sweet Potato Pie II

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
I made this for Thanksgiving, and followed some of the suggestions others posted here. I added a 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract, and cut the sugar to just 1/2 cup brown sugar, and left out the white sugar. I thought it was plenty sweet, but my sister said a little more sugar would have been better. So it really depends on how sweet you like your pies. I don't think sweet potatoes need much sugar. Also, the filling texture was a little too stiff, so next time I will try just adding whole eggs, and not beating the whites. But overall great recipe and I would make it again!
