Southern Sweet Potato Pie Recipe

Publisher Photo
This recipe is very popular here in the South. It's a particular favorite at our house because we always have plenty of sweet potatoes in our garden. Try it with a dollop of whipped cream. —Bonnie Holcomb, Fulton, Mississippi

MY REVIEW

Best potato pie I have ever had.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 31, 2013

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!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 2, 2013

Somehow I ended up adding too much butter to the recipe. It was still tasty & edible.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 10, 2013

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.
