Out of the oven!
I am bringing two pies to work tomorrow as it's my holiday to work (although I am hitting the sales at 10PM) I am bringing one to my mom's and one stays home with MOI. This is a collaboration of a few recipes so technically, it's mine. Also, I only added the 5 spice because I had it in the house and since it's sweet and salty, I decided to use it instead of a pinch of salt. It also has nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon I believe so it fits the recipe.
Also, make sure you roast your potatoes and not boil. I skipped this important step one and took the easy way out and it made a big difference in the taste. So take the extra prep time to roast them, they get all caramelized and yummy. Boiling steals all their flavor.
They look great. I have never had sweet potato pie! I have had plenty of sweet potatos like mashed, and candied but never in a pie. I gotta try it!
Great pics too!:biggrin-new:
IMO, they are much better than Pumpkin pies....home-made is the better than store bought.

Weren't you just on here giving someone a hard time about cracked pies? :cool:
First of all, I didn't give him a hard time, I just made a suggestion on how not to crack a cheesecake. Secondly, only one cracked(bottom left), the other three are indentations left by my knife test...duhhhh.:cool: After all, it is a souffle, sort of.

I made nice copies of the recipe and printed a few of them tonight as I know I will get recipe requests. :biggrin-new:
Edit" I need to critique my own recipe since I always do so with Patriot.:cool: It's a little sweeter than I would like so I may tweak it next time. I may cut back the sugar to 3/4 white and 3/4 brown. Probably with the Cool Whip, it won't matter.
