SPP is one of my favorite things to make. Though I don’t usually go with the deep dish. I might have to try this out and post the results on my blog. I once asked my wife’s grandmother if she could give me the secret to her delicious sweet potato pie recipe and she replied “lotta butta, lotta sugar.”

I will keep you posted.
