Store-Bought Pie  Makeovers: Pecan Streusel  Sweet Potato  Pie | Mrs. G's Appliance Chef

This pie is a combination of two of my favorite holiday pies: Pecan and Sweet Potato.  It’s so easy to put together too. Start with a frozen, unbaked Sweet Potato Pie and then top it with a yummy pecan streusel.  The nutty crumb topping and a sweet spiced custard filling make this a perfect ending to your holiday meal.
