Pumpkin-Sweet Potato Pie with Sugared Pecans Recipe
This is not your typical pumpkin pie! With a smooth, creamy filling and pretty arrangement of nuts on top, it's an extra-special dessert. —Loretta Lawrence, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
- 1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
- 1 cup mashed sweet potatoes
