EXCELLENT! Very easy and tasty! For those of you who claimed that the filling was too "mooshy", try baking the potatoes in the oven and not boiling them. Baking them intensifies the flavor of the potatoes.

I made his recipe for my boyfriend and he absolutely loves it. He is VERY picky when it comes to sweet potato pie (usually only liking his mother's) but he is in love with this one. I made one slight change. I substituted the evaporated milk for eggnog. The eggnog gave it and entirely different twist that was absolutely wonderful. I also let it bake about 10 minutes longer so the center firms up. This recipe is now my standard.

This splendidly spicy, buttery rendition of the Old South Favorite is more historically authentic by using brown sugar and remembering to add GINGER to the spices. Very early American, old fashioned and perfectly delicious. Can also be doubled for two pies.
