Sweet Potato Pie with Maple Candied Pecans

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is just a week away? It seems like it has just snuck up on me this year. I’ve got most of my menu planned already, and was thinking about which pie I would serve today.

I usually make at least two pies, an apple, because everyone loves apple, and one that I really love. This year, I decided I’m going to make a sweet potato pie. It’s one of my favorite pies from my childhood. It’s sweet, filled with spices and so creamy. Plus it has all the added nutrition of sweet potatoes, so it’s not completely unhealthy.

I wanted to make this pie really simple to whip up, so I tried to keep the ingredient list as short as possible. And with a little help from Paula over at Bellalimento.com, this recipe (minus the topping) is just 5 ingredients! I used a pre-made piecrust to make it really easy, but you can also use your favorite homemade butter pie crust recipe and it would be fantastic.

For the filling, I used 2 medium sweet potato that I had just zapped in the microwave. I mashed them in a big bowl and then added a can of condensed milk, some eggs, and some pumpkin pie spice – too easy! For the topping, you can use pre-made candied pecans or the recipe below. Finish with whipped cream and dessert is done.
