This recipe is easy and delicious. It is a light consistency. I added pecan strudel on top. Family loved it.

I thought the pie turned out great! I used baked sweet potatoes and added 1/2 tbsp of lemon juice. Next time I’ll use a deep dish pie crust to accommodate all of the filling. Great, easy recipe!

I did exactly as the directions instructed and it turned out perfect!!! I also made this same pie for and older coworker of mine, for his birthday, and he said "It was so good, tasted just like how my momma use to make it"... FOOD COMPLEMENTS DON'T COME BETTER THAN THAT!
