    I made this pie last year and it was an absolute hit! I personally don't even know what it tastes like because before i could get a piece everyone had eaten it! so it must be good and its pretty simple to make.

    I made this last year. It was really yummy, but really rich! I think if I made it again I would make about half the pecan topping, because it was VERY sweet! Everyone for Thanksgiving loved it though! I just like a little less sweet things than most people.

    Made this for Thanksgiving a few years ago and it was delicious. I can never decide between pumpkin or pecan and I like that this falls in the middle somewhat. Everyone loved it! Making it again for this year!

    Yes it was good--I am going to use this pecan topping with some baked apples. My pie does have a slight grain-y subtexture. It did not take away from the taste but I am assuming it was from the way I pureed the sweet pot the old fashioned way??? Any suggestions for this begginer cook would be greatly appreciated.

    OMG!!! I am currently waiting for the pie to cool, but I had to stop myself from devouring the puree blend and the pecan topping as well. I know this is going to be a hit, I will post back once the pie is complete ;) I had to make a few modifications b/c I didn't have any cream or nutmeg. I also used a grahm cracker ready-crust with only 1 huge sweet potato. Martha strikes again ;)
