Pumpkin pie and sweet potato pie

I don't like either of these btw, LOL.

My mom used to make pumpkin pie and sweet potato pie for the holidays and my MIL makes pumpkin pie. She's (nor the rest of the family) never heard of sweet potato pie. Maybe one day I'll try making it. Try being the operative word here, LOL.

But have any of you ever made it?

  • Sure, I've made both. I like the texture of pumpkin better, but the flavor of sweet potato is my favorite.

  • No never even heard of Sweet Potato Pie

  • Yes, Ive made both from scratch before, get a good pumpkin pie recipe, peel, cut, and boil your sweet potatoes, drain and mash them, and substitute the mashed sweet potatoes for the pumpkin in the recipe, I go a little heavier on the spices in sweet potato pie though.

  • I love both! My two favorite desserts at Christmas and Thanksgiving! I was just talking to my husband last night though about how I'd love to make a pumpkin pie. I might do that this weekend. :)
