"Oh, my goodness, what a delicious pie. You just can't beat that German chocolate flavor. It is one of the easiest pies to prepare and an added plus is that it can stay in the freezer for up to 3 months. Not that it will at this house but that is good to know if preparing it in advance for a party. Definitely worth five stars. I highly recommend this recipe as a volunteer field editor for Taste of Home."
