This adaptation comes from a recipe in a little booklet entitled "Peyton Presents Some Sweet Ideas." Peyton Zieger was a very creative cook and delighted in coming up with new recipes using sweet potatoes. She also wrote a food column in one of our local papers. Everyone loves this yummy sweet potato pie! Since Peyton encouraged us to experiment with recipes I tweaked this one just a wee bit! I believe you will find it a delightful and much requested pie...so just enjoy! p.s. Baking the sweet potatoes ahead makes this really quick to make!

    In a small bowl, mix all the topping ingredients together and set aside until ready to use.

  4. After 35 minutes, spoon the topping around the outside edge - about an inch or so in from crust edge. Return to over to finish baking.
  5. Cool on wire rack. Serve with whipped cream to which a pinch or two of nutmeg has been folded in for another layer of taste surprise.
