While served sweet potatoes during my first Thanksgiving with my lovely boyfriend Matt's family, I took my requisite "no thank you" portion. Little did I know I'd be polishing off the bowl towards the end of the evening. They taste like pumpkin pie!

This may be made ahead, refrigerated, and baked later- if doing so, don't add the pecans until ready to bake to avoid sogginess.
