It said to mix until smooth but I don't think this is what it meant??? The one thing that made it so soupy was when I added the milk 1/2 cup of milk, I think I should have used dry/powdered milk?
I'm not sure and since I haven't been in the world of cooking I don't know if it's right or if I could have done something to make it better. It's got about 20 more minutes in the oven...I don't want to be disappointed.
Any suggestions or tip on what I could have done or what I did wrong?
Thank you for your time
Unless a recipe specifically calls for powdered milk, it means liquid milk. Either whole or 2% should work fine if it just calls for milk.
I've never made a sweet potato pie, but they remind me of pumpkin pie. Pumpkin pie filling is soupy as well, but it sets up when baked.
Also, you don't want to cut it while it is hot. Let it cool first.
