Ferguson has been making sweet potato pies for so long she can judge how much of each ingredient she needs without measuring. Six sweet potatoes should make two pies, she says. She uses two eggs for each pie.

While there are sweet potato pie recipes galore, there are differences about the best recipes among the ranks of sweet potato pie lovers. For instance, Ferguson says some people use regular milk, but she only uses Eagle Brand. She also skips the myriad spices and flavoring some recipes list.
