Baker Beware. One reviewer wrote that it was too watery. I suspect she made the same mistake I did and thought the whipping cream was for a topping after baking. However, I realized (too late) t...

hands down, the best sweet potato pie recipe I have ever tried...and I have tried many! Perfect texture and not too sweet.

Once again I've messed around with this recipe right from the start, so I have no idea how it would have come out in it's original form. The inclusion of the 2T lemon juice is worth 4 stars all...

My family loves this recipe so much, that it has become a "must have" during the holiday season.

I was kind of iffie about making this recipe for thanksgiving. no one when i was growing up ever really made sweet potato pie but i figured what the hell... why not. not even 20 minutes after it...

followed to the tee and it came out too watery for me

very yummy, but it makes 2 pies, so make sure you have 2 pie crusts!

I really like this pie. The conversion from 2 cups of cooked mashed potato is more like 450 g. The pie shell should be uncooked although next time I will pre-cook at 170 c. before adding the pie...

Absolutely love this pie! Very sweet potato tasting, nice and sweet. Superb with whip cream on top! My whole family loves this pie recipe!
