"I had the best sweet potato pie from Mrs. Ramsey mother of our own hall of fame basketball star but she was more famous for a lot of us for her cooking and this recipe is darn near closes to it . My family loves it"
"I always cook sweet potatoe pies for my family for Thanksgiving an Christmas but this year I wanted to try taste of home recipe I did and my family loved it of course I added a little more sugar but for the most part it was worth it. Thank you taste of home."
"This was my husband and I 1st time making a sweet potato pie and We both agree that the pie is definitely not sweet enough and missing some main ingredients we made a 2nd one and we left out the flour and add cinnamon and brown sugar and a little more nutmeg with some vanilla extract and more sweet potatoes and ole boy was it delicious"
"I just made these pies today for the second time. I would suggest as I have done both times to add 2 or more cups of sweet potatoes and cut back on a bit of the sugar. Other than that, this pie is so so so good!!"
"way too sweet... 2/3 c sugar would have been enough. Do you even test these recipes?"
