I used orange fleshed jewel "yams", not sweet potatoes. For the evaporated milk, equal parts heavy cream and half and half were substituted. Prepared this crust:Perfect Pie Crust for Double Crust Pie and used freshly ground allspice and freshly grated nutmeg.Mmmmm! Easy to make, too! Thank you for posting. Much better than pumpkin pie.

FABULOUS! I love that it is not too sweet. What a great introduction to this dessert! I skipped the crust, because I was too lazy, and baked it in a 1 1/2 quart baking dish. I used what we Yankees call "yams" i.e., the orange fleshed tuber, not the white ones. Also, was roasting something in the oven, so i just pierced the yam and baked it in the oven, then mashed it as the recipe called for. So so so good!

This is the 2nd sweet potato pie recipe I've tried. I liked that it wasn't too sweet. I followed the recipe exactly except for using a water-powdered milk mix instead of evaporated milk and putting it into a passover matzo meal crust. My only issue is that I think I needed to blend the mixture since I found egg didn't incorporate completely evenly, and I had a couple of white eggs spots on the top.

I make sweet potato pies several times a year and this is the recipe I use. It's perfect just how it is or you can put a teaspoon of grated orange rind in for extra flavor.

No offence but was not a big hit with my family. This was the first time any of us tried sweet potato pie. Just not something we would prefer.
