Spiced Pecan Crust
This is so easy! I used Blue Bonnett and very finely chopped pecans. I baked both the Pecan Pie IV and Lorrie Sterling's Sweet Potato Pecan Pie using this and it was wonderful!

Sweet Potato Pecan Pie
This is delicious! It is sweet and creamy. FYI, I washed 4 large sweet potatoes, cut them in 3-4 chunks each, and baked them at 350 for about 30 minutes (I think) and then slipped the skins off. It was about right for the 2 cups. I also used half and half for the light cream, and I baked it in the "Spiced Pecan Crust" (recipe found here). I used finely chopped pecans for the topping, and it was very good--complementary to the texture.

Pecan Pie IV
This pie received rave reviews at Thanksgiving. I did vary from it, in that I used half portions of light and dark corn syrup and half portions of light and dark brown sugar. I used "real" brown eggs, that are always better. I did mix together the melted butter (though I used Blue Bonnet) and flour before adding it to the mix. Also, I added 1 TBS Captain Morgan's spiced rum. Because I read that it requires a deep dish, I made the recipe, but divided it between two pie shells and added more pecans to make up needed volume. I also used the "Spiced Pecan Crust" recipe found here. Because of the two more shallow pies, I baked them for 40 minutes, and it was about perfect with my oven. My husband says this is the best pecan pie he's ever had!
