German Chocolate Pie

by admin on November 26, 2010

If you like German Chocolate Cake, you’ll love this recipe! This is a rich, delicious but easy pie to make.  Add shaved chocolate on top of the whipped cream for a great presentation.

1 (4-ounce) package sweet baking chocolate
¼ cup butter or margarine
1 (13-ounce) can evaporated milk
1 ½ cups sugar
3 Tbsp cornstarch
1/8  tsp salt
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 unbaked 8-inch pastry shells
1 ½ cup flaked coconut
½ cup chopped pecans

1.  Combine chocolate and butter in a saucepan; cook over low heat, stirring until chocolate melts.  Remove from heat, and gradually stir in milk; set aside.

2.  Combine sugar, cornstarch, and salt in a bowl; add eggs and vanilla, mixing well.  Gradually stir in chocolate mixture using a wire whisk.  Pour into pastry shells, and sprinkle with coconut and pecans.

3.  Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes.  Pie may appear soft, but will become firm after cooling.  Cool at least 4 hours.  Yield:  2 8-inch pies.  This recipe can be halved successfully.

For church dinners, I double the recipe but bake them in 3 deep dish pie shells. Cut each pie into 10 slices and serve with whipped cream on top.
