Reviews for Sweet Potato Pie
"I absolutely LOVE this pie! My husband and I do not add processed sugar to our foods, but we were hosting Christmas dinner for extended family, and we wanted a pie. I decided to give this recipe a try and to use Japanese sweet potatoes, which are much more sweet than your general sweet potato, and OH MY GRACIOUS!!!. I also added ginger to our recipe. I was pretty sure my husband and I would be happy with the pies because we were not expecting a sugary sweet taste. What did surprise me was that our entire family really enjoyed it. My sister (in-law) who DOES like a sugary pie taste, loved the pie so much that she asked to take a pie home. Even our children, who do eat processed sugar, in moderation, thought the pie was outstanding! Since then I have made pies in bulk (4 to 5 at a time) and freeze them, but they don't last long!"
"Made this for the first time on Thanksgiving. It was amazing! I topped with a marshmallow meringue!"
"This turned out totally yummyI subbed nut milk, added fresh ginger and made a cookie crumb crust; everything else is as listed.While it baked, I was dubious because it sort of smelled like bubble gum, but once it cooled, it had a whole new aroma.Tasted great, slices beautifully. Topped mine with yogurt."
"It's really really Goooood!!!??????????"
"Substituted my leftover Thanksgiving sweet potatoes that already contained butter, brown sugar, allspice and melted marshmallows for the ones in the recipe. The result? Perfection! And nothing gone to waste!"
"I've made many sweet potato pies over the years and this is by far the best recipe I've ever used. I didn't change any ingredients. BTW you may need to increase your baking time depending on your altitude and your own oven. I increased baking time by ten minutes and it was perfect. If you are a novice pie crust maker, I'd suggest the Crisco pie crust recipe. It's my standby pie crust and super easy. Thank you for this great recipe."
"I've made 4 ot these, and they are prrfect. This recipe keeps the filling very light and it does not sink after baking. It is very good but be sure to bake your sweet potatoes until the sugar carmelizes, and let them sit overnight before removing the skin and pulping. This will make the pies taste super super good and sweet."
"Not the best recipe"
"Good recipe, going to make it.."
"First time using this site."
"I loved this recipie, although i did tweek it a little bit.. I used sweetened condensed milk...added sour cream and apple pie spice...i also added an extra 1/4 cup of sugar...delicious!!!!!"
"Best recipe ever! Instead of evaporated milki used eagle brand."
"I hope u all recipe is right cause I'm doing this for Christmas"
"This sooo good"
"This pie recipe is awesome"
"I used your recipe but instead of using a pie crust, I used cupcake liners and made a Graham cracker crust. I also topped it off with almond slices and a home made soft caramel custer. My family loved it!"
"Did not vary the receipt at all and it is fantastic!"
"This right Right here. Is just the boom. I've made this ,just picking this bu chance,,, and "who make the BEST sweet potatoe pie" Bam! This chick right here,,,"
"I used this to make my first sweet potatoe pie. Mine turned out amazing and I am so proud of myself. My husband said "they are selling quality". I did change the recipe a little....I baked the sweet potatoes so they'd retain their natural sweetness and not absorb too much water. I also added a half cup light brown sugar. I doubled the vanilla, cinnamon, and added an extra pinch of nutmeg. Lol! Great starter recipe, just taste and add until its where u want it to be."
"Excellent recipe! Awesome"
"I loved it. I added a little more cinnamon and topped with marshmallows. I'm from the South and that's the way we like it."
"No where does it say boil the sweet potatoes until soft. Then peel. There was little sweetness to the pie.I have been making pies over 60 years. These are just my suggestions."
"This is my first time ever making/ ever having sweet potato pie so I don't know what to compare with. I just felt like it lacked flavor, maybe more spice would be needed? It doesn't seem very sweet either, but maybe that's just sweet potato pie! For me it was just alright. My husband and his family loved it though, so that is why I gave it 4 stars."
"Excellent!!! My husband and our children loved it! :)"
"Fabulous!!! I used white sweet potato, instead of the standard orange yam, and it came out most excellent! White sweet potatoes are a bit sweeter and the flesh is a bit finer, like a regular baking potato. I look forward to the next time, where I will use the orange yam instead."
"This pie is so easy and good!!"
"I tried it and everyone loved it"
"My family loves this pie. I have tried others but this one got more votes. I love that its simple and richer. I used a slightly deeper dish for it and it worked great. I will be making it again for sure."
"Just to clarify: I doubled the recipe and used TWO deep dish crusts."
"I make it every year for the holidays. I love it!!!"
"I made it, everyone loves it, and I make it a lot when the sweet potato harvest is in. I can honestly say this is the best sweet potato pie recipe I have ever tried. The only minor problem was that the filling is a little too much so if you aren't careful you can spill the filling while you put it in the oven. But still, very very good!"
"Tried it; loved it and will definitely make it again!!!"
"great pie, one of the best i have ever made or eaten. my family just loved it !"
"This was my first sweet potato pie and my family, co-workers and neighbors loved it. I am making it again for memorial day. I would change nothing."
"Be sure to use a "deep dish" pie shell or you'll waste a portion of the filling."
"Thanks for the recipe my family really enjoyed it.The Williams family GA."
