Chowhounds, I am wanting to make a sweet potato pie and wondered the best technique for baking one. I have tasted some that are bland with no flavor or they are stringy. I want to make about four sweet potato pies that are flavorful and good. I am not sure how many potatoes, or how much sugar and eggs etc. etc. I have come across a couple of recipes that no one can vouch for. I would love to hear your suggestions. Also, how do you keep the crust from browning too fast and getting hard on the outer decorative edges.
