Mix until the crust is smooth and resembles a coarse texture. With the <br>machine running, add the butter and process until all of the butter is <br>incorporated. Remove the crust from the processor and press into a deep-dish <br>10-inch pie pan. Place the pan in the oven and bake for 10 to 12 minutes or <br>until the crust is set.<br><br>In a saucepan, combine the eggnog, sweet potatoes, brown sugar, egg yolks, <br>cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and ginger together. Mix well. Place the pan over <br>medium heat and cook the mixture for 10 minutes, stirring constantly.<br>Remove the pan from the heat and sprinkle the gelatin over the filling. Whisk <br>the gelatin into the filling until the gelatin dissolves. Stir in the vanilla. Cover the <br>filling and refrigerate until cool.<br><br>Using an electric mixer, whip the egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add <br>1/4 cup sugar and continue to beat until the peaks are stiff. Fold the egg <br>whites into the sweet potato filling. Spread the filling evenly over the crust and <br>refrigerate the pie for about 1 hour.<br><br>Spread the whipped cream, evenly over the top of the pie.<br>Slice the pie into 8 pieces.
