"She tasted the first sweet potato pie, 'This is too grainy! Like mashed potatoes in a pie crust.' She tasted the second pie, 'This is too plain, like pumpkin pie, only less so.' She tasted the third pie 'Ahh, this is just right. Strong sweet-potato flavor, but still a nice texture. Yum. Yum. Yum.'"

Great simple recipe. I cut the sugar in half otherwise made as directed.

I use simple recipes as I find where they are complicated they are not that much better. I just made this pie and I will be making this one again and again! It is so flavorful! The only changes I made were using less sugar, (3/4 C of sugar) and 5 oz of Evaporated Milk (rather than 1/2 C milk). This is all I had in the house. It truly came out like a Sweet Potato Pie as opposed to the taste of a Pumpkin Pie. I noticed that amazingly enough, the recipe is identical to Sweet Potato Pie 1, my next recipe choice. My Fiance' loved the pie as well, so no need to fancy it up!
