East Texas Pecan Sweet Potato Pie step by step

  1. Toast pecan pieces in a pan over medium heat, until you can smell them. Roughly 3-5 minutes. Set aside..
  2. Cream mashed sweet potato, melted butter and eggs together until very smooth. I use a stand mixer..
  3. Add all remaining ingredients including toasted chopped pecans and blend together until mixture is very smooth..
  4. Pour into frozen pie shell and bake at 350" for approximately 50-60 minutes until pie custard is set. Pie will be done when a wooden toothpick comes out clean when inserted..
  5. You can boil your sweet potatoes or even use canned. I prefer fresh baked sweet potatoes. I like to serve this pie well chilled and keep it stored in the refrigerator. Garnish with whipped cream and toasted pecan pieces. Enjoy!!.
