Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie
1/2 cup chocolate chips(I used semi-sweet)
1/4 cup butter
~Heat on low until blended and smooth
Add to chocolate while beating on high the following:
1 can of evaporated milk
1 1/2 cup sugar
3TBSP of cornstarch(sift in, you dont want clumpies!)
1/8 tsp salt
Beat 2 eggs until lemon colored, add 1/2 tsp vanilla, then add this to the prior ingredients, continue mixing on high...when well blended, pour into unbaked pie shell(it kind of smells like chocolate milkshake:)
Cover top of pie evenly with 1 cup of coconut. The original recipe said to mix coconut with pecans , this sounds good but I didn't do it, because the fam no likee pecans :)
Bake at 375 for 45 minutes. Top will puff a bit and form a layer. It will seem to "liquidy" when you take it out, but don't worry it will set up!! Allow to sit out on counter for a few hours, don't worry unless you are in Alaska it isn't going to get cold anytime soon.
I got this out of a 1985 Mary's of St Hannah cookbook it belonged to Terri Weber. She forgot to put in how many eggs, so I had to come up with that on my own. It seemed to work. It was amazing and a BIG hit...I bet I could sell it for $4.00 a slice...because I would buy a slice at that price! I didn't take this picture but this is what it looked like...yummified.
