Easy and very delicious!! The hardest part is cooking and mashing the sweet potatoes.

Can you use canned sweet potatoes instead of freash?

I made this for Thanksgiving and it was delicious. Next time, I'm going to cut the amount of white sugar and add some brown sugar for a nicer brown color. I love the spices and will also try adding vanilla extract. Delightful. Thanks for the recipe.

This is a great recipe! I've been using it for years. Got it from an old Ebony Magazine. Best sweet potato pie recipe I've found so far.
