1 recipe Gingersnap Crust
1 (15-ounce) can sweet potatoes in syrup, drained and mashed
3/4cup solid pack pumpkin
2/3cup sugar
3 eggs
3/4cup coconut milk
1/2teaspoon ground ginger
1/2teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4teaspoon ground allspice
1/4teaspoon salt
1cup sweetened coconut flakes, divided


  1. To prepare filling, combine mashed sweet potatoes, pumpkin, sugar, eggs, coconut milk, ginger, cinnamon, allspice and salt in a bowl; whisk until smooth. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the coconut flakes into the bottom of the cooled Gingersnap Crust. Gently pour pumpkin mixture over coconut. Bake on a baking sheet until the filling is just set, 60 to 65 minutes. (Note: If the crust around the edges of the pie begins to get too brown, loosely cover the edges with aluminum foil.)
  2. While pie bakes, place remaining 1/2 cup coconut in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook, stirring, until lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and let cool.
  3. Remove pie from oven and set on a wire rack. Immediately sprinkle with cooled toasted coconut and let pie to cool 1 hour. Chill at least 3 hours before serving.
