Sweet Potato Pie with Pecan Streusel

Sweet potatoes are the edible roots of a plant in the morning glory family. Some have tan skin and pale yellow flesh and a dry, fluffy texture when cooked, similar to that of a regular potato. Others have dark reddish or purplish skin and deep orange flesh and a soft, moist texture when cooked. The latter are sweeter and are known in the United States as yams, although they are not true yams, which belong to a different species and are rarely available in the United States. Both types of sweet potatoes can be used for this recipe, although the yam, particularly the Garnet yam, is preferred.

Best Sweet Potato Pie Ever!
April 30, 2010
My husband's family is from the south - deep south. Since we've been married I have tried to add more and more southern recipes to my repertoire and made this pie for the first time last fall. Since then it has been requested several times by my husband and my children, got rave reviews from coworkers, and was called the best sweet potato pie my husband had ever had. This is a definite keeper for the holiday menus!
