Best potato pie I have ever had.
I read this as 1 AND 2/3 cup of sugar, which combined with the corn syrup, was way too sweet. I would loose the corn syrup altogether and reduce the sugar to 2/3 cup. By the way, this overflowed in my oven, and tasted nothing like the sweet potato pies my parents made for us (Texas). I will not try this recipe again!

Somehow I ended up adding too much butter to the recipe. It was still tasty & edible.
This recipe looked so simple that I thought I would try it since this is my oldest grandson's favorite dessert. It was certainly not that good and no, I would not ever make it again. Will stick with my tried and true recipe that my grandson requests every Christmas or holiday that he spends with us.
