Has the potential to be a really great recipe, but I found 1 tsp of orange zest to be way TOO much. The orange zest overpowered the cinnamon/nutmeg flavor and the natural taste of the sweet potato. I couldn't taste the pecans at all. The texture of the filling and the sweetness were perfect and I liked the consistency of the pecan pie topping, but next time I'll use just a pinch of zest (less than 1/8 tsp).

I made this pie for thanksgiving and it was hit! I skipped the orange zest and used a 9oz pie crust instead of 6oz. I also doubled the sweet potato and pecans ingredients in this recipe. Would definitely make this again.

This pie is unbelievably delicious and puts pumpkin pie to shame. The only alteration I would make to it when I make it again is to lessen the amount of orange zest as it takes away from the actual taste of the sweet potatoes.
