This Sweet Potato Pecan Pie is my absolute favorite pie on my blog! Sweet Potato Pie with a Pecan Pie topping, you don’t get any better than that!
This Sweet Potato Pecan Pie is the perfect marriage of Sweet Potato Pie and Pecan Pie. If you like them both, you will love this Sweet Potato Pecan Pie.
Thanksgiving is the day that your bellies have been waiting for all year. It is the day where calories are consumed and gaining 3-5 pounds isn’t unheard of. That will be the day where you will commit one of the 7 Deadly Sins of gluttony and ask for forgiveness later. THAT IS THE DAY (in my preacher’s voice) that you won’t count your Weight Watcher Points, stick to your Jenny Craig or Nutrisystem diet plans, or use your Fitness Pal Calorie Counter because you KNOW that you are going to do some damage. And that will be the day (hopefully) that you will add a new dessert to the menu on your Thanksgiving holiday. You will share with your families the comfort, the goodness, and the sweetness of a Sweet Potato Pecan Pie. Mmm, Mmm, Mmmm am I good or what?
This pie is quite simple to make. You simply start off making this pie the same way you would make a Sweet Potato Pie. Try my Classic Sweet Potato Pie recipe if you have never made this family-favorite dessert. Add the spices and sugars along with the rest of the ingredients and add to the pie crust. Next, make a pecan pie topping that is made with pecans, eggs, and corn syrup and pour on top of the sweet potato mixture. Place in the oven and bake! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made this recipe without a single complaint but with only, more requests from friends and family.
I wish I could take sole credit for coming up with this idea but I can’t. This dessert has been around for a long time. The first time I had it was at Pappadeux Seafood Kitchen and I fell in love. Now, when I eat something super yummy, it is my mission to try to duplicate it the best way I can. There are some things, however, that I do love but will leave it to the professionals such as sushi. I won’t dare try to make sushi. But this pie, I can do. I have searched long and wide for a recipe that gives my tongue and belly such foodie pleasure. This recipe did just that. I dare you to try to make it for your family this week. I trip dog dare you! Add a new dessert this year to your table and this one should make the cut.
