I know this isn't a cake.. But I trust you guys as the best source for my answers!

Every holiday I get asked for my Sweet Potato Pie. I am making a lot this Easter so decided to buy Crust instead of make it (oops. icon_smile.gif)

However, I wasn't thinking and bought Graham Cracker crusts..

The Sweet Potato takes 40-60 minutes to cook.. Will the Graham Cracker crust make it? Maybe if I put tinfoil on the edges?

I'd just go out to buy more crust but 1. I don't like to waste, and 2. Graham cracker crust sounds yummy!

i agree with Mimi. You may actually have a much better pie with the graham than a store-bought pie crust.

This past Christmas, I decided to use Pillsbury crust to cut out the crust decorations on my homemade pies and crusts. They looked beautiful. BUT... I took a bite of the Pillsbury and it had no taste at all. I will never do that again. I had made extra piecrust for the cutouts, but my family kept asking for more pies, so I decided to use up all of my crusts. My sons-in-law are both pecan pie lovers. So for fun, I had a bake-off at Christmas to try some changes. Once I got "the
one", everyone just kept eating them like crazy. This year I'll be more prepared.
