This is the best recipe! I was my great grandmother's. However, if you don't want to cook the sweet potatoes from scratch, use canned sweet potatoes and mash them. of course we top it with whipped cream!
Add each ingredient in order shown into mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly after each addition. Pour into pie crust (do not pre-bake).
bake at 425° for 15 minutes. Reduce oven to 350° for an additional 40 minutes. Top pie with rough chopped pecans, cinnamon and sugar mixture then bake for an additional 5 minutes or until inserted knife comes out clean.
