Reviews for Caramel Sweet Potato Pie
"Excellent pie! Used pecans instead of walnuts, and it came out delicious!"
"Great texture and flavor!!"
"I made this pie last night and it is EXCELLENT! Light and fluffy and the spices are just right! Unusual twist with the caramel and walnuts on the bottom. I would increase the walnuts to 3/4 cup."
