FAQs?

Why the potato pie is dense?

When you over-bake your potato pie, it gets dense and loses all its moisture, and is no longer soft. While if the baking period is very short, it will be slimy. So while making sweet potato pie, you have to be very careful in baking.

Do we add eggs to the pie?

Yes, we do add an egg to the pie stuffing to keep the mixture together and to add a good flavor. It also helps the pie for good baking.
