Take a bite of this classic Southern dessert and you'll never guess it's been lightened up. The pleasing pie gets great fall flavor from a hint of pumpkin spice. —Test Kitchen

"I had a sweet potato pie receipefrom one of Taste of Homes magazines but can't find it. I hope this is the one I used as it was so good. I have tried other receipes but they just didn't have it. I plan to give this one a "try".Mtn. gal."
