Reviews forEggnog Sweet Potato Pie
"I left out the white sugar since the sweet potatoes themselves were so sweet, and everyone said it was wonderful."
"I have been making sweet potatoe pies every year for quite a few years now. I have my own recipe but was intrigued by the idea of using egg nogg rather than plain milk. So I had to try it! I must say, although I didn't follow the recipe to a tee, the results were absolutely on point and fabulous!! Best sweet potatoe pie I have ever eaten or made in my life, and I know a lot about soul food....here is my changes for the best pie ever: 2C mashed red yams/sweet potatoes, 1 stick butter melted, 2eggs, 1T flour, 1/2C each of light brown sugar & white sugar, 1T nutmeg ( or more ), 1T cinnamon, 1 tsp vanilla, 3/4 C egg nogg. Blend as recipe says, pour into unbaked pie crust. Foil around the edges of crust and bake for one hour at 350. Done when knife inserted comes out clean!"
"Can you use canned sweet potatoes?"
