Outstanding recipe.. I am from the south and my mom bakes sweet potato pies with her eyes closed. Unfortunately, I couldn't contact her so I used this recipe. I used it for a pot luck and I had no ideal it would come out so great. Thanks for posting this recipe.

This was my first time making a sweet potato pie, although as a girl with southern roots, Ive had plenty of them in my day.

It was amazing! Although I spent most of the prep time doubting I could do it, It was the best sweet potato pie anyone in my family had ever had.

They've officially placed "orders" for me to make them for thanksgiving. Great recipe!

Amazing and easy recipe!!! This was the first time I made the sweet potato pie and it turned out just like how one of our southern friend makes it. Now we don't have to wait for her pie every year!!! I just substituted the corn syrup with equal parts honey. Otherwise, perfect.

Thank you so much!
