1 (6 ounce)
graham cracker pie crust

Has the potential to be a really great recipe, but I found 1 tsp of orange zest to be way TOO much. The orange zest overpowered the cinnamon/nutmeg flavor and the natural taste of the sweet potato. I couldn't taste the pecans at all. The texture of the filling and the sweetness were perfect and I liked the consistency of the pecan pie topping, but next time I'll use just a pinch of zest (less than 1/8 tsp).
I made this pie for thanksgiving and it was hit! I skipped the orange zest and used a 9oz pie crust instead of 6oz. I also doubled the sweet potato and pecans ingredients in this recipe. Would definitely make this again.
This pie is unbelievably delicious and puts pumpkin pie to shame. The only alteration I would make to it when I make it again is to lessen the amount of orange zest as it takes away from the actual taste of the sweet potatoes.
Easy and a good "comfort food". Would make again.
Absolutely delicious! I followed this recipe to a T, except for the grated orange rind (for some reason I can't zest to save my life). I made 2 of these pies for our big Thanksgiving get together last year and everybody loved it! I didn't find out until later, but one of my uncles actually took the second pie and hid it in the trunk of his car after he tasted it. He just called me yesterday and told me to please make sure I make him his own personal pie this year, lol :0)
Used yams for the recipe. Didn't have any orange zest, so I skipped it. The pie turned out great! Very easy to make. This one is a keeper.
This was simple & delicious. I used a homemade graham cracker crust and spiced it up with some cinnamon, nutmeg, & allspice. I also added 1 tsp. of allspice & clove to the sweet potato mixture. I loved the orange peel...gave it great flavor. For the topping is subbed maple syrup for the corn syrup & maple flavoring, doubled the pecans, and used only 1 tblsp of brown sugar. Came out great!
Great recipe, It was really easy to make and was a hit with my family.
