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

  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 near 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. Yield: 8 servings.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with commercially prepared eggnog.
