"A variation on this recipe  Thankfully this delectable sweet potato pie with a cinnamon roll crust will come to the rescue at your Thanksgiving table. It’s less sweet than pumpkin pie, which is great for its sugary counterparts like marshmallows and cinnamon rolls. But like pumpkin pie, it has that wonderfully smooth texture that balances so well with a flaky, tender pie crust." Firebyrd Firebyrd

I loved this but I just added a half cup of brown sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Came out really, really good. Definitely going to do this recipe again.

This is a straight-forward, no-nonsense, real-deal sweet potato pie. I cut back the sugar slightly ... and it was plenty sweet. People loved it.
