Made this for Thanksgiving this year. YUM! This recipe caught my eye because it used canned sweet potatoes, something I haven't used before. I made as directed, except used deep dish frozen pie shells. In the rush before the holiday, it was super easy to put together and absolutely delicious. Definitely a holiday keeper!

I have made this quite a few times and everyone loves it and wants the recipe. If i'm short on time I just use a frozen ready made pie crust and it still taste great. This is a Keeper recipe
