If you love this pie you may want to try out Maple Pecan Pumpkin Pie. It’s a combination of a pecan pie and a pumpkin pie and it’s delicious.

❤️WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

This pie is made with a fresh sweet potato but you can use canned. It’s so easy to put together and the spices with the sweet potato are delicious. We also make our own pie crust but you can always use a store-bought one to save time.
