This pie has all the things you like about pumpkin pie and you can substitute pumpkin for the sweet potato if you wish- I make it both ways. Sometime even using the leftover marshmallow sweet potatoes from dinner- works good too! Even added the cranberry relish after the first baking before I put the pecan topping on and bake the second time. Delicious!!
