This pie is yummy. I have never had sweet potato pie before so I don’t have anything to compare it to; but my boyfriend and I enjoyed it. The filling is sweet and creamy and the spices make it smell wonderful. I am not particularly great at making crusts; you might consider getting a frozen one. Also, the filling didn’t completely fill the pie to the top, it was about ½ to ¾ of an inch deep from the crust, so you can flute the side a lot (I ended up with a centimeter and a half of plain crust around the edges.) I followed the direction exactly. My only question was about the evaporated milk. I used powder (dry) milk, but I wonder if they wanted you to use condensed (liquid) milk. Condensed milk may have made a more voluminous filling, which could explain the my crust height problem.
