Autumn Wartime: Week 7 - Sweet Potato Pecan Pie
This weeks' Autumn Wartime recipe is for the very promising-sounding Sweet Potato Pecan Pie! With Halloween behind us and Thanksgiving ahead, this recipe looks like just the ticket to get into the holiday spirit!

I couldn't resist trying this pie in advance of the holidays. It was too good to pass up for later!
And, boy was it delicious! My entire family detests sweet potato, but they gobbled this pie up. That is a true testament to this recipe's excellence! (It also helped that we served it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Mmmm....)
I think next time I'll decrease the salt to 1/4 tsp. and instead of corn syrup, I'll use maple syrup. I was worried about it not having cinnamon or nutmeg, but I didn't notice the absence really. I might add a wee bit next time. Maybe a 1/4 tsp. of cinnamon.
Oh, man I can't wait to make this again. You will have to give this one a try, my friends!
