  1. 4 stars (for some reason I could only choose 5 starts).

    thanks for posting this. The pie ‘filling’ is good. I would increase the amount of spices though. Unfortunately this recipe resulted in a soggy crust. I have another recipe for a crust made of almond and coconut flour (with an egg also) and it has directions to cook the pie crust by itself before adding in the filling. This has given a nice crunchy crust for all my recipe. Here are those directions:
    “bake the crust for 5-7 minutes until it’s a very light golden color. Freeze the crust for 30 minutes, then add filling and return to the oven for full bake time. You may also need to cover the edges with foil as almond flour burns easily.”

  2. I’m so excited to try this. Do you think I could make this and freeze it? If so, should I freeze before or after cooking?

  3. Thanks for another great recipe George! I actually got this one from your app – worked out well and very tasty…used fresh sweet potato from our garden.

  4. George, I am going to make this for Christmas and it said to use a 9 inch cake pan..is that correct, not a pie pan?thanks it looks amazing..

  5. uh…the recipe I see above does not call for sheep’s milk..why are people asking about it? did u change the recipe?
