As a big fan of sweet potato anything, this recipe was fantastic when I discovered it. However, I don't have the slightest idea about making a pie crust which is why I used a pre-made one. If you can, make it yourself by all means and enjoy this delicious pie helping to remove those tempting chocolates that will pile up over Xmas.
