This recipe is very popular here in the South. It's a particular favorite at our house because we always have plenty of sweet potatoes in our garden. Try it with a dollop of whipped cream. —Bonnie Holcomb, Fulton, Mississippi
We baked pies a few days before holiday gatherings and placed them in a tall pie safe on our back porch. My father called this sweet potato pie recipe "royal pie," fit for a king with its deliciously different flavor. It's a hand-me-down recipe, a treasure in our family. —Fae Fisher, Callao, Virginia
"I've been preparing this glazed pecan-topped pie for so long that I can't recall when I came across the combination of ingredients my family liked best," relates Anita Ammerman of Albemarle, North Carolina. "It always draws lots of compliments."
Pies are therapy to me. This is one I make for special events and holiday celebrations. The eggnog and sweet potato make a soft filling that goes nicely with the crunchy topping. —Sarah Spaugh, Winston-Salem, North Carolina
I love making desserts. And by modifying the recipes to reduce the fat, our family can enjoy them more often. You'd never guess this trimmed-down tart, with its homemade pecan crust and creamy filling, is light. —Kate Gaudry, La Jolla, California
