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 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.
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.
