Sweet Potato Pecan Pie IIi

Recipe by Traci Jeff Poole2

Two favorites in one.

Top Review by Holly Blackwell

I subbed maple syrup for the corn and added 1/2 cup of pecan meal. This was decent but not as yummy as I'd expected. It wasn't seem as rich as I thought it should be, especially with all that fat. It also needed some spice, maybe a teaspoon of ginger and cinnamon would have been better. Next time I'll just use my trusty pumpkin pie recipe.
