This recipe is not complete - How much sweet potato? What is the mixture for the batter? Why should I use this and guess?

I have been making this desert for over 10 years for Thanksgiving or Christmas gatherings and the family says to keep brining it back! It is easy to make and a favorite.

I read all the reviews first and I was torn about making it. It seemed so many bakers had difficulties with it not setting up. But there were those that said it was a family favorite for years. Add this to my Thanksgiving dinners from this day forward! Easy to make. Just follow the directions. There are no tricks to it. One other recipe on this site says to bake at 350, but this original recipe says 375 degrees, which I did. I used an old 9" Pyrex pie plate and had room to spare for the filling. I couldn't believe how pretty it was the way it settles and separates the layers. The gue

My review is supposed to say there was not a lot of room for the pecan filing. I think there is too much cream cheese filing or perhaps my pan wasnt deep enough

I am not sure how deep this pie is supposed to be but i used a deap dish pie pan and the cream cheese filling almost filled it. Then I added the pecans, there was a lot of room for the pecan filling. In fact most of it boiled out onto the cookie sheet. they layers did however flip in baking and there was a small layer of pecan filling, then the large layer of cream cheese then on top the pecans. I prefered the traditional pecan pie I made over this, but other dinner guess said they loved it. If I make it again I will probably use less of the cream cheese filing or try and use it to make 2

Because I like pecan pie a little less sweet than the traditional recipes....I decreased the corn syrup to 3/4 cup, and increased the chopped pecans to 2 cups. Also, I saved 16 of the nicest whole pecans and arranged around the top of the pie. It's both beautiful and delectable!

I just made this pie (a trial for Thanksgiving) and followed the directions exactly. I also put the pie on the center rack for 35min. It came out PERFECT! It's so yummy and super easy to make. Great for making ahead because it has a long cool time :)

@ MomO, Minde7: the recipe is right...I have made it several times, and during the cooking process, the cream cheese layer rises to the top. It is not as sweet as a traditional pecan pie, which makes it perfect. So don't fret, just follow the instructions, and you will have a perfect pie.
Hope this helps.

This is an amazing recipe!! Very good and fun to make. For everyone saying that the directions are wrong...there not. It's why they call it "mystery" pecan pie. The layers change while it cooks! Its fun to watch. It's a great pie to make for the holidays.
