Sweet Potato Pie With Three Nut Topping

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Top Review by TiffyR

This was the best pie I have ever had, let alone made! I made it for Thanksgiving yesterday and everyone was fighting over who got to take some home. I followed the directions exactly and used the homemade pie crust as well. This will definitely be on my table at Thanksgiving every year from now on.
