Alexis's Sweet Potato Pie

Recipe photo courtesy of Yossy Arefi

This scrumptious sweet-potato pie, created by Martha's daughter, Alexis, strikes all the right balances: its consistency is dense but not heavy, and its flavor sweet but not saccharine. When buying fresh sweet potatoes, choose small- to medium-size examples with smooth, unbruised skins. Martha made this recipe on episode 705 of Martha Bakes.

    The ingredients work well together but without enough sugar and other key ingredients (secret family recipe ingredients which I can't tell you :-)) cinnamon and allspice take over and it tastes more like pumpkin pie instead of sweet potato pie. What I can tell you is at least add vanilla. That's all I can tell you, I don't want to give away my family's recipe :-)!

    I make this recipe every year. It's wonderful if you do not like pies that are overly sweet.

    I made this last year for Thanksgiving, and everyone loved it. Im making it again this year, some people have already asked if im making it. I topped mine with whipped cream. Soo Good!!!

    I was NOT impressed with this pie at ALL. It was bland, no personality. Just BLAH.

    Just tried this recipe for the first time and so-far-so-good. I didn't follow the instructions at all (I added all of the wet ingredients in one bowl before the crust was even finished). I'm curious to see how a pecan crust would work with this and I'd like to add bourbon to the whipping cream.
