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 used sweetened condensed milk and decreased the sugar. Regular condensed milk has carageenan which is a PROVEN CARCINOGEN! YIKES! Avoid it like the plague because IT IS! The recipe is absolutely delicious, and my pie turned out wonderfully. I think I doubled the spices and used "Pumpkin Pie Spice" by McCormick because that was what I had on hand. I am also going to use Xylitol instead of sugar because it (and stevia) are the safest and best sugar substitutes. (The pink, blue and yellow packets are POISON! And aguave is pretty high on the glycimic index: much adoo about nothing aka hype)
I was wanting a pumpkin pie, and my can of pumpkin turned out to be yams. I drained the yams, mashed in the kitchen aid and measured out 2 cups. I doubled the spices and followed the directions. It was great !! Now my family wants more. I will use sweet potatoes, just to see if anyone notices the difference.
