"From Southern Living -- a classic sweet potato pie!"
Serving Size: 1 (165 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"Great recipe! I actually doubled the spices because we like our sweet potato pie spicy down in the south. My husband and friends loved it. I even gave some to my friends parents and they said it was the best sweet potato pie they had ever had."
"Yummy! I couldn't wait until Thanksgiving to make this. Had to have it now. This tasted just the way my grandmother's did. Rich and flavorful sweet potato filling with a slight spiced touch. Thanks Nurse Di for a wonderful, comforting pie."
"Yuppers is yummy, but for true southern yum bump up those spices by at least 1/2 and neither orange or lemon zest not hurt it....and for those that like it a little sweeter, maybe if you make two try a thin layer of streusel topping on one....and that's what I like about the south."
"I doubled the recipe to make two 9" pies....I added 1/3 cup EXTRA sugar....I started baking the pies at 425 then reduced to 325 rather than 350 degrees because I was afraid the edges of the pie crust were cooking too fast...the pies baked a total of 55 minutes at 325 degrees plus the 15 minutes at 425....Sweet potato pie is one of my favorites and this recipe is a winner.....the texture and taste were perfect...thank you for posting!!!!!"
"I had an abundance of sweet potatoes I needed to use so when my husband requested a sweet potato pie I found this recipe and decided to give it a try. As some other reviewers suggested, I doubled the spices and this turned out to be the best sweet potato pie we have ever had! My family has told me to make sure I keep this recipe in a safe place because it's the only one they want from now on."
"I had never made any kind of pie before and found this to be an extremely easy recipe. Our home smelled wonderful as this baked and the result... delicious! Actually was even better than the traditional pumpkin pie we have at thanksgiving dinner. Excellent!"
"My parents were over for dinner and this is what I made for dessert. Another easy, no-fuss recipe that a busy woman like me appreciates. I used store-bought pie crust dough which made it even easier. The filling was creamy and delicately spiced. A perfect ending to a perfect meal. Thanks."
"This was really good...not too much sugar or spices like a lot I've tasted. Easy to make. It was just right! Had to cook about 55 minutes though, too mushy after 35-40."
"Delicious! I made this with purple yams (from the asian market) and it was gorgeous AND tasty! My advice for future cooks would be to make sure your butter is softened and really mash the potatoes well."
"Born and raised in Mississippi I ate a ton of sweet potatoes growing up..baked, fried, casserole, and, of course, my favorite, pies! Also good with lemon instead of the spices. Either way, it's gotta be topped with whipped cream or topping."
"I usually don't like sweet potato or pumpkin pie, but my sister wanted two for her Thanksgiving gathering. I found this recipe and completely changed my mind! After reading the reviews, I did double the spices, and added a LITTLE ground cloves. It was fabulous! We made one with a graham cracker crust and one with a regular pie crust. Almost everyone preferred the graham cracker crust, me included."
"I grew up baking with my mom. We have always had way too much food at every single family event! But we never had sweet potato pie, which I recently discovered is my favorite pie! I decided to try my hand at this recipe for Thanksgiving. I cannot stress this enough.... this pie turned out amazing! I had a slice, and I must say that it was the best piece of any pie I have ever had! I added about a 1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie seasoning by McCormick. I highly recommend this!"
"This is a fantastic pie! Very light and creamy, not too sweet. I doubled the cinnamon, but made no other changes. Next time I would stir the cinnamon and nutmeg into the sugar in the beginning to prevent the spices from clumping. To make the mashed sweet potatoes, I peeled and diced 2 large sweet potatoes (the orange ones that the grocery store calls yams) and boiled until a paring knife easily pierced the potatoes. Then I mashed them up by giving them a whirl in my stand mixer. This made well over 2 cups. Easy and delicious!"
"A-MA-ZING! Creamy, melt in your mouth delicious. Amazing. Amazing. Amazing!!!!!!!!!!"
"This was a hit with my friends (and myself). I followed others' advice and threw in a little extra sugar and spice - absolutely delish."
"Great recipe. Subbed the evaporated milk with regular 2% and soft margarine for the butter. All in all great recipe."
"So yummy, I added an extra half teaspoon of cinnamon and a few tablespoons extra sugar, DELICIOUS and will def make again!"
"Well holiday time is a bit unusual in my household.. my husband is from the south (his mom was a REAL southern cook!) and my family is white and Jewish.... but I doubled the spices and made this pie for dessert for our Holiday Dinner... this was BEYOND a hit. Its EASY and tastes like you spent hours slaving over it. DEFINETLY worth the effort"
"Mmmmm! I had never tried sweet potato pie before so I wanted to make it for Thanksgiving. It was a huge hit! I left out the nutmeg because we have some picky eaters and added just a dash more cinnamon and it was delicious. Super easy to make, too!"
"I used our leftover candied sweet potatoes from the holidays and it was fantastic. I also added some pecans to the top and this pie was the best. It was wonderful. I will continue to use your recipe (my family wont let me try another...lol) for my sweet potato pies. Thank you."
