Coconut-Pecan German Chocolate Pie
Total TimePrep: 50 min. + chilling Bake: 35 min. + chilling
I followed the recipe to the letter other than the crust. I used a graham cracker crust that I found at the grocery. The pie has an amazing flavor. It is very rich and you cannot eat a huge amount but a little goes a long way. My specialty is fruit pies, specifically apple. I would definitely recommend this recipe to anyone who is a chocoholic??. As far as crust goes, I think any crust will work. I find that the crust is just the “vehicle” for the good stuff. This will definitely be in my holiday pie arsenal for the future.
This pie is awesome! I used butter instead of lard, but other than that followed the recipe exactly. It's super-rich, but as a chocoholic I loved it.
Don't believe the bad ratings. This is better than it looks and it looks delicious. Don't make substitutions and follow the instructions. It's a keeper recipe. 5 stars.
If you follow the recipe it will turn out perfect! The pie is perfect! Is it sweet, rich yes it is so you only need a small slice. I have made this pie 4x and will keep on making it once in a blue moon sorta speak
Sorry I changed my review after trying another piece. I could not understand why my my filling wasn’t setting??? There is no cornstarch in this recipe, and two egg yolks didn’t do the trick of binding. This was really a waste of money. Eating a whole can of Condensed Milk is nasty even with chocolate added. At least a Keylime Pie has the Lime to cut through the sweetness.
Made my own crust, otherwise made as directed. My grandkids loved it. So did the adults. Yes, it has a lot of calories, but we have pie about twice a year, it is not a weekly thing. So people, it is pie, not a health food. To cut the calories in half, cut the slices in half. There, do you feel better? Only 400 calories a slice. And it is so rich, eat it slowly, savor it and that smaller slice is enough.
This recipe does sound delicious, I make chocolate pies when I find a new recipe. Had to stop for as I was getting carried away, put on a few pounds! I will make this pie for sure, don’t know if I’ll put the topping on, I’m sure the pie itself is great! And ladies you can use Crisco instead of Lard. Lard is animal fat. It is usually always near the shortening. Not very good for the heart! They used it years ago! Not too much today.
this was excellent. Hubby said it's the best pie he's ever had-and I make a lot of pies. It is rich, but I don't think it's too rich, hey, it's pie! I made as is, except used my own pie crust. I've already been given the order (by family) to make sure I make it for Christmas dinner.
I wouldn't make this again. I like rich desserts but this was way too sweet.
This was very good and relatively easy. For me it was WAY too sweet and rich. My hb and daughter really liked it.
