Can sweetened condensed milk be used in sweet potato pie instead of evaporated milk?
By Rebecca Warn
They're not the same thing at all so I would say no.

They are not the same, but I use it all the time. Simply cut out the sugar as well. Make sure you taste test, but I love the convenience.
Yes you can also it replaces the sugar in the recipe. I use this for pumpkin pie and really makes the pie not as sweet and taste more of the spices and pumpkin. Just try it and see which you prefer.

What is condensed milk?
<b>Editor's Note:</b> Wikipedia says Condensed Milk "is cow's milk from which water has been removed and to which sugar has been added, yielding a very thick, sweet product which when canned can last for years without refrigeration if unopened. "
