This is a great pumpkin pie recipe. I have made this pie for three years now. I tried it as soon as I saw it on Cook's Country, and have never used a different recipe again. It tastes so good!
Very delicious pie, even better the next day so plan on baking the night before. The texture is more firm when done this way. Baked this recipe as is, and then made a few changes:
Added 3 tsp ground ginger instead of 2
added 3/4 tsp nutmeg
Added 1 tsp cinnamon
Changed the spices because you could not taste them in the original recipe much at all.
Also used premade pie dough and it worked just fine.
I didn't strain the mix either time l made it, I just made sure that I smashed the sweet potatoes a bunch while mixing and it still came out smooth.
The flavor of this pie is great!
