Expert Tips

  • The cream cheese should not be softened. If the cream cheese mixture is too soft, it could bake into the sweet potato layer.
  • If preparing recipe with Spice Pack (included with the Pet-Ritz® pie crust packages for a limited time during fall) omit cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt.
