    I can't believe anyone would rate this less than 5 stars. This is the perfect recipe. The lemon makes a huge difference. The only thing is this pie does need to "set up" so make it, refrigerate, and serve the next day.

    Made this pie without all[filtered]e that was missing in my pantry, but it came out perfect. Baked it for 50 minutes, at which time the filling was all puffed up, but it deflated while cooling it on the rack. The pie shell was great, too. I w[filtered]-heartedly recommend this recipe.

    I've searched for yrs to find a sweet potato recipe made the way I like it. I've tried dozens that did not hold up to the restaurant versions that I grew up loving.This is the ONE!!! Finally, I can make my SPP the way I love it at home. I add a tsp of brandy or rum and it's perfect. Thanks, Martha and Danny Glover!!!

    I made this in a store-bought graham crust which worked fine. This recipe is first cousin to pumpkin pie, except it uses butter in place of condensed milk. [With no added liquid it is a little firmer.] The seasoning is excellent. The total result is OK but buttery-fatty; I'll try a pumpkin pie recipe using steamed sweet potatos as raw material.
