How to Make COCONUT-PECAN GERMAN CHOCOLATE PIE

Step-by-Step

  1. Roll dough to a 1/8-in. thickness in a circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim and flute. Line unpricked pastry with foil. Fill with pie weights. Bake in a preheated 400º oven for 12 minutes. Remove foil and weights; bake 6-8 minutes or until light brown. Cool. Reduce oven setting to 350º.
