Deep Dish Crunchy and Sweet Sweet Potato Bake

Ok - a long name for sweet potato casserole. I got this recipe from my friend Beth - her in-laws make this. I tweaked it to not make it so rich and sweet because i like it better medium on the sweetness. But, this is so yummy! And I had to use real sweet potatoes.

5 large sweet potatoes (bake, take out of skins)
1 stick salted butter, melted
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
2 T cornstarch
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp all spice
1/2 cup milk

Bake in a deep dish baker (round, Pampered Chef). Spray, 400, 20 minutes.

1 cup cornflakes, crushed with your hands
1 stick salted butter, melted
1/c cup chopped pecans
2 handfuls coconut (how can this stuff get any better?)

Melt butter, stir in rest. Spread on top of casserole. Bake at 350 for another 18-20 minutes or until browned.
So creamy and then crunchy and sweet on top. I'd rather have it crunchy and sweet than with marshmallows.
