I was very optimistic about this non-traditional sweet potato recipe, but never made it past the crust. I had to search high and low for a scale which could tell me about many sweet potatoes makes 350g. I was NOT happy about struggling to make the conversions.
The dough was WAY too much for one pie, and very wet. The directions were not easy to follow, and since I was in a rush, I scrapped the whole thing and made something else. :(
