As someone who grew up eating sweet potato pie I want to say that your recipe looks great! I didn't eat my first bite of pumpkin pie until I was in Junior High and having it for our Thanksgiving meal dessert. I still don't know why anyone would prefer it over sweet potato!!! :) I have my own family recipe for sweet potato pie but I will make yours one day and when I do, I promise not to change your recipe and then leave you comments. Once you change the recipe your comments are about another recipe! :)Regards,CharlotteSweetMothersKitchen.com

The pie is absolutely fabulous. My mother has never tried sweet potatoes pie before, and - have always mentioned how she would enjoy it. Especially because she likes pumpkin pie so much.. She wasn't just pleasantly surprised.. She is hooked !

Fabulous pie, we made it tonight and loved it. I forgot the lemon and it was still good. Next time I may add a little more cinnamon to it. This is the first sweet potato pie we enjoyed, we took some left overs to my dad and he loved it as well.

Loved this pie. I used fat free evaporated milk. Cut the sugar to 1 cup--but used 1/2 cup of dark brown sugar & 1/2 cup granulated. Has a good texture. Next time I am going to add more cinnamon & pumpkin pie spice. I enjoy a spicey taste.

My husband asked for a sweet potato pie for the holidays & I think I've found my staple! This recipe was amazing and I don't even like sweet potato pie! I also forgot to add the vanilla (as I'm 9 months pregnant with baby brain...) but the batter is really sweet enough to hold its own and it's nice and spicy. This is an amazing recipe and I can't wait to make it again! Thanks for submitting it!

This is a wonderful, flavorful sweet potato pie. I cut back on the sugar and only used 1 cup and it was just right. I used regular pie shells, but the next time I make this recipe I will get deep dish pie shells. I had about one cup of the filling left over.

I`m going to make your pie recipe today. I have been having a hard time finding a recipe that uses a full can of evaporated milk. They all use like 3/4 cup. So I was so happy when I found your recipe. I`ll let you know how it turns out.Thanks again,Cathy
