I had used my mom's sweet potato recipe for years claiming it to be the best. I've, now, concluded this recipe near perfection. Oops, did I just reveal my disloyalty to the entire world wide web? Made for A-NZ #47.
This is fantastic good. I adapted the filling for a diabetic and it's a very adaptable and forgiving recipe. I made just the filling and in a 1/2 pie amount using 1/8 cup of Splenda Brown Sugar and regular Splenda for the white sugar, 1/4 cup of EggBeaters. I used fat free evaporated milk for the whipping cream and low fat sour cream with 1/2 to 3/4 tsp of rum extract (I didn't measure that exactly). I baked it it @ 350 for about 45 mins and YUMMM. You have a wonderful creation BK. I wanted to take pix for you but my neighbors were here and as they are both diabetic also ....well, I had to share *sigh*. I'll make this again and be sure to take a pic or 3. I might add that the neighbors left with my adapted recipe.
Beautiful and wonderful holiday pie! My guests couldn't be happier! This is going into my holiday list of must-make pies. Thanks, Baby Kato! Made for Photo Tag.
