the texture of this pie was good, but i felt it needed a little more salt and a tad more of spices. it was not a sweet pie, but just sweet enough. a nice standard recipe

Being in the northeast, few of my friends and family have ever eaten sweet potato pie. This recipe was a fantastic introduction to this autumn staple. I especially like that the ingredients are really simple to find and not too complex. I will definitely try this recipe again, but I may try topping with pecans for a bit more crunch and maybe adding a tablespoon of maple syrup for a more complex flavor.

Great recipe -- After cooking the sweet potatoes, I had one pound flesh and placed that in a food processor and streamed in the liquid (I used 1/2 & 1/2) to get a smooth consistency. I melted the butter and emulsified that with the egg yolks, then added the whites, mixed that with the sweet potatoes, then added that to the sugar/spices (I also added one Tbsp AP flour) I let the custard sit in the fridge overnight to let the flavors combine, then baked it the next day

Great healthy dessert! I reduced some of the sugar because I am a fan of less-sweet desserts. Great spice flavor and pairs wonderfully with vanilla ice cream :)

This is the first sweet potato pie I have made. I didn't mash the pulp enought so I had chunks. Not overly spicy but still good. Next time will make the pulp smoother.

I would have preferred a slightly sweeter pie. I also ditched the recommendation for a frozen pie crust and made a homemade pie crust. Why would you ruin an excellent pie with a fake pie crust?

This is my favorite pie. I make it all the time. I use a store bought graham cracker pie crust instead of the refrigerated one.
