Yam Pecan Pie

I just made 2 of these pies right now.. Starting the regular pecans one soon...


pastry: 1 1/2 cups sifted all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons water
1/2 cup shortening

sift flour and salt into a bowl. Take out 1/2 cup flour and blend with water to form a paste. Cut shortening into reamaining flour until the pieces are the size of small peas. Add flour paste to blended shortening and flour mixture. Mix with a fork until the dough comes together and can be shaped into a ball. Roll out crust 1/8" thick and line 9" pie pan.

Custard: 1 cup mashed sweet potatoes, cooked or canned
1/3 cup brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ginger
Dash salt
3/4 cup scalded milk
2 eggs, well beaten

Combine sweet potatoes, brown sugar, cinnimon, ginger,salt,milk and eggs.( If fresh sweet potatoes are used, add 1/3 cup granulated sugar.) Cool and fill pie shell. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with toppings.

Topping: 1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup pecans, finly chopped

Combine ingredients. Continue baking for an additional 25 minutes. Serve with whipped cream when cool.
