"Excellent recipe. In response to the person with the burnt crust, put filling into frozen crust and then bake. I have noticed that a thawed out crust cooks faster and burns. I get a perfectly golden crust when I cook using a frozen crust."

"Great. Impossible to find sweet potato pie in Denver, so this scratches the itch. For the person who complained about burning the crust, it’s important to cover the crust with foil until the last 20-25 minutes of baking . This is required for any pie that bakes longer than 30 minutes to prevent burning. ToH probably shouldn’t have assumed everyone would know that..."

"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!"

"I followed directions exactly and pie burned. The crust and the top of pie burned. I will not try again. Try allrecipes.com for a better recipe."

"This turned out totally yummy

I 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."

"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!"
