Pecan & Sweet Potato Pie

I tried a Pecan Pie recipe from Cooks Illustrated. The crust was great, but the pie filling was not as good as I would have liked. Flavor-wise. I was wondering if anyone has any recipes they would recommend or share. Also, while I'm at it, I'm looking for a great sweet potato pie recipe.

I posted James McNair's recipe for sweet potato pie in the sweet potato pie thread below. It's the best I've tried. The two of us usually polish the whole pie off in one day!

His pecan pie is also the best I've tried, too. I use Lyle's Golden Syrup instead of light corn syrup in pecan pie. I don't care for dark corn syrup pies at all.

I could have sworn there was already a pecan pie thread as well. Anyway, my favorite is this one from Dean Fearing

You're right, there are several pecan pie threads.

My recipe for Bourbon Pecan Pie is in this one: The Pecan Pie Topic

-----

ETA: search results for titles with Pecan Pie.

There are many interesting subjects, including troubleshooting pecan pie recipes and "What makes Pecan Pie southern?"

I don't understand why rappers have to hunch over while they stomp around the stage hollering.  It hurts my back to watch them. On the other hand, I've been thinking that perhaps I should start a rap group here at the Old Folks' Home.  Most of us already walk like that.

Found this in the Washington Post just before Thanksgiving and gave it a shot. Loved it. It's got the highest pecan:goop ratio I've come across. It was way nutty and not at all cloying as some pecan pies can be.

I used a slightly different flaky pastry recipe, but this filling. Toasted the nuts before adding.
