Sweet Potato Pecan Pie

For this luscious pie's filling, sweet potatoes are mashed and combined with egg, sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and cream. Pecans are combined with brown sugar and butter to make a rich caramelized topping that's spooned onto the cooked pie before it's slipped under the broiler for a moment or two.

Bake sweet potatoes until tender, peel and mash. Make sure all lumps are removed, straining if necessary. Lightly beat eggs. Blend together eggs and sweet potatoes. Stir in sugar, salt, cinnamon,...
