German Chocolate Pie

While traveling through a small Amish town several years ago, we stopped at an authentic Amish restaurant that served German Chocolate Pie. It was so good we ended up buying an entire pie to eat the next day. Ever since then I have been dreaming about, drooling over, and seriously craving this pie. After many attempts, I think I have finally perfected it! I knew I had it right when my family ate the entire pie out of the pan before it even had time to cool! Hope you love it too!

Start with the crust

The pie crust is simply a basic pie crust. You can buy a frozen or refrigerated crust or make your own. For a perfectly flaky and tasty pie crust, see our Perfect Pie Crust Recipe. As good as the pie crust is, the filling is what makes this pie so incredible. Loaded with decadent flavors and textures it is almost like eating a German chocolate brownie in a pie crust, only better. Just imagine the moist, dense, rich chocolate, coconut, and pecan in every bite. Is your mouth watering yet? Mine is!
