Reviews for German Chocolate Pie
"This is wonderful! You'll definitely need a deep dish pie shell. All my friends loved it; however, it was a bit sweet for me. I'll probably cut back on the sugar some the next time. Definitely a keeper!"
"Llangley6 we use large eggs in the Test Kitchen. Note that it calls for a deep-dish pastry shell."
"Wanting to try this. Has anyone else had a problem using large eggs?"
"Our son-in-law loves pie, so I try to make one for him often. This recipe has been in my file for years but never made it until yesterday. He an our daughter said it was really,really good and she asked for the recipe."
"Loved this. I'm a big coconut & chocolate fan so this hit the spot. Can't wait to introduce the rest of my family to it. Definitely a keeper!"
