    Being from the MS, I love sweet potato pie. I made this for 2 holiday dinners and it was a HUGE hit. Everyone said it was spiced just right and I personally loved it as well! Thank you for this wonderful recipe for an old time favorite! - 1/5/10

    I used splenda products and used cream, to follow my low carb life style. I love the spice being so festive. I also use fresh baked sweet potatoes not canned. - 12/19/09
