"My husband talked with a guy he was playing basketball with the day before Thanksgiving, who told him how good sweet potato pie is. I looked up this recipe on TOH.com--so delicious! We went to the store on Thanksgiving and made your recipe. Thank you, Anita, for sharing this recipe."

"I created an account just to comment that this is recipe is amazing! Sweet Potato pie is my all time favorite, and I've tried several recipes that have disappointed. None of them were ever this simple and straight forward, or tasty!"
