Definitely a matter of personal taste. I make and enjoy pumpkin pie and have never had sweet potato pie. Perhaps I would like it better than pumpkin if I tried it. Perhaps I wouldn't like it at all as I am not a fan of sweet potatoes.

The seasonings for pumpkin, sweet potato and butternut squash pies are the same pretty much, aren't they?

I'm not sure I could tell the difference among them unless I was doing a side-by-side-by-side comparison. Which I'm more than willing to do, if anyone (or three of you) would like to send me one of each. :-)

If well made, both are good. I'm just sick of pumpkin pie made from canned pie filling. I can't even eat it.

I now have a strong preference for sweet potato pie!

I have a feeling that pumpkin pie and sweet potato pie tastes run regionally, being that more Northerners grow pumpkins and Southerners grow sweet potatoes, but I could be wrong. Having had a mother with Southern roots, we loved sweet potatoes any which way at our house, including cold for our packed school lunch. My Northern side of the family only made pumpkin pies. (It just wasn't natural to make sweet potatoes into pie)Personally, I'd take either one if you'd like to serve it up to me. Plenty of whipped cream, though!
