Reviews for Classic Sweet Potato Pie
"Just made this pie for thanksgiving 2015....Yum, I used Whipping Cream instead of Sweet Milk, and real organic sweet potatoes, hate some can foods, also added a little grated nutmeg, YUMMMMMMMM"
"I have made this quite a few times and everyone loves it and wants the recipe. If i'm short on time I just use a frozen ready made pie crust and it still taste great. This is a Keeper recipe"
"Could it get any better? No! The can sweet potatoes make this super easy to prepare. And your getting a veggie/dessert in one!"
