Ingredients:

  • Crust:
    • 1 pre-made pie crust (or your preferred homemade pie crust)
  • Filling:
    • 1 cup evaporated milk
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
    • 2 eggs, beaten
    • 2 cups German chocolate, chopped
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Topping:
    • 1/2 cup butter
    • 1 cup brown sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
    • 1 cup chopped pecans

Instructions:

First, heat your oven to 350°F (175°C) before you start making the Coconut-Pecan German Chocolate Pie.

Get a 9-inch pie dish ready and put the pie crust in it. In a medium pot, mix evaporated milk, sugar, and cornstarch to make the filling. Stir the mixture all the time while heating it over medium-low heat until it gets thick.

Take it off the heat and add the broken eggs, chopped German chocolate, vanilla extract, and salt. Use your hands to fill the pie crust.

Next, get the filling ready. In a different pot, melt the butter over medium-low heat. After you add the brown sugar, cook until it melts.

Take the pan off the heat and add the eggs and vanilla flavor into it. Add the nuts and coconut shreds and mix them in. Cover the filling in the pie crust with the coconut-pecan mixture.

After the oven is hot, bake the pie for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is set. Let the pie cool down all the way before you serve it.
