This Sweet Potato Pie with Pecan Topping is a Thanksgiving MUST! Enjoy it as a side with your Thanksgiving turkey or as a dessert topped with some freshly whipped cream, this pie is a classic for the holidays!
Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Make your favorite pie crust and prick all over with a fork. Spread 1/2 cup pecans in bottom of shell. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. Lower oven temperature to 300 degrees.
Mash potatoes and butter until smooth. Add all the other ingredients and blend well. Pour mixture into the cooled pie shell.
Combine all topping ingredients in a medium bowl with a fork, until crumbly. Sprinkle over the top of the pie. Place the pie on a baking sheet and bake at 300 degrees for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown.
