  1. In a small bowl, combine pie crust mix and pecans. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Roll out to fit a 9-in. deep-dish pie plate or cast-iron skillet. Transfer crust to pie plate. Flute edges; set aside.
  2. In a food processor, combine the eggs, sweet potatoes, milk, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla and salt; blend until smooth. Pour into crust.
  3. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; bake 30-35 minutes longer or until a knife inserted in the centre comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Garnish with whipped cream and toasted pecans if desired.
