This was the first time I ever made a sweet potato pie and i must say it was quite easy. I peeled and steamed the sweet potato rather than boiling. The nuts were a nice addition. Although I followed the recipe exactly, I ended up with enough filling for one deep dish crust and one regular crust. Oh well, more pie is never a bad thing. Thanks for the recipe...
