    Made this for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. Much better than traditional pumpkin pie!

    I loved this pie! The pie was light and refreshing and the marshmallow meringue was delicious. However, the family was not crazy about the strong citrus flavor. Would try again with less lemon!

    I thought this pie was delicious. Loved the lemon flavor. Really brought out the taste of the sweet potatoes. The meringue was beautiful. It will become a Thanksgiving tradition.

    I made the marshmallow meringue and used with my own sweet potato pie recipe. It was a huge hit both times I made it. I used a piping tube for the meringue - it was beautiful. People were impressed and thought I used a blow torch to brown the top.

    Tastes more like a lemon pie than a sweet potato pie. I would try this without the lemon.

    Overall a good effort on a classic. WARNING: baking times on crust are inaccurate. Additionally, meringue is pretty, but the marshmallow overpowers the sweet potato taste. Good effort but unnecessarily over the top.

    I have been drooling over the picture of this pie on the cover of Southern Living this month, and just let me say, this is the best sweet potato pie, EVER! My father-in-law had the largest piece and insisted on finishing the whole thing because he was afraid he'd die during the night; then took the rest of the pie home and refused to share. Love the marshmallow creme meringue and it's every bit as good as it looks. Allow some time to make the pie from start to finish but will definitely make this again as a special occasion pie.

    Absolutely wonderful, I love the lemon zest, it adds a very interesting twist. Best sweet potato pie ever!

    Overpowering citrus- couldn't taste the sweet potatoes at all and way too much meringue.

    This was maybe the worse sweet potato pie I've ever had. It has far too much lemon. The cooking time in the recipe is grossly wrong. I would not recommend this to anyone. I would give this 0 stars if that was a choice.

    I expected this to be good, but was very disappointed. The crust idea was good because it did not get soggy, but the pie wasn't worth the calories. I fed it to the dogs who would probably give it 5 stars.
