Ingredients

4 oz
package german chocolate
1/4 c
butter
1 1/2 c
evaporated milk
1 1/2 c
sugar
3 Tbsp
cornstarch
1/8 tsp
salt
2
eggs, beaten
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 1/2 c
coconut, flaked, divided
1 c
chopped pecans, divided
1
deep dish pie shell

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Melt chocolate with butter over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in evaporated milk.
2
In a separate bowl combine sugar, cornstarch, salt and eggs. Add the sugar mixture to the melted chocolate.
3
Stir in 1 cup of the coconut and 1/2 cup of the chopped pecans and vanilla.
4
Pour into the pie shell that has been placed on a cookie sheet. The cookie sheet will help the pie cook more evenly and prevent spill overs.
5
Sprinkle the top of the filling with the remaining 1/2 cup coconut and remaining 1/2 cup of pecans.
6
Place in a 350 oven and bake for 50-55 minutes or until the top puffs and just starts to brown and crack a little. Allow to cool for at least 3 hours before serving.
