Pies are therapy to me. This is one I make for special events and holiday celebrations. The eggnog and sweet potato make a soft filling that goes nicely with the crunchy topping. —Sarah Spaugh, Winston-Salem, North Carolina

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping
  • 1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)
  • 2 cups mashed sweet potatoes
  • 3/4 cup eggnog
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

Directions

  1. Carefully spread caramel topping over bottom of pastry shell; set aside. In a small bowl, combine the sweet potatoes, eggnog, egg, butter and vanilla. Stir in the sugars and cinnamon. Carefully spoon over caramel layer.
  2. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; bake 30 minutes longer.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the coconut, flour and brown sugar. Cut in butter until crumbly; stir in pecans. Sprinkle over pie.
  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean and topping is golden brown (cover edges with foil if necessary to prevent overbrowning). Cool on a wire rack. Store in the refrigerator.
