Classic Sweet Potato Pie Recipe

Paul Azzone relies on this simple but special deep-dish pie to provide a down-home finish to hearty autumn meals served at home in Shoreham, New York. Pecans and pumpkin pie spice make this one comforting seasonal classic.

"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"
