Reviews forCrunchy Sweet Potato Pie
"I used walnuts instead of pecans in this pie and it is absolutely delish and I am going to make it for my family for the holidays"
"Wonderful! pie making just doesn't get any easier or tastier. Topping was very plentiful. pie would still be great even if topping left off. Used canned potatoes. Baked as directed. Whipped cream is a must for the sweet pie! As a volunteer field editor for Taste of Home I enjoy classic recipes with a new twist."
"One of our favorites for Fall. I puree the sweet potatoes in my blender so it is much creamier. I chop the nuts FINE so it's easier to cut."
