I have been really into pies lately. Apple, chocolate, pumpkin, any kind of pie. I think this is mostly due to the fact that unless I make one, I won't be able to eat any. In addition to pie of all sorts I also love sweet potatoes. Given my separate, albeit equal, love for both pies and sweet potatoes I decided to channel my southern roots (just kidding I have zero southern roots) and make a sweet potato pie curtesy of recipes by Shauna, The Gluten Free Girl, and Emeril Lagasse.
It was my first ever sweet potato pie and I really liked it! I'm usually not a fan of pecans but I thought they were good. If you didn't have them, however, I think they could be replaced fairly easily with walnuts.
