Tomorrow is DH's birthday, so tonight I made his favorite...German chocolate pie.  It smells so good in my kitchen right now!

Here is the recipe I used.  My MIL gave it to me.  I think it is based off a Baker's coconut recipe.



GERMAN CHOCOLATE PIE

1 Tbsp cornstarch

2 cups sugar

7 Tbsp cocoa OR 1-4oz bar German Chocolate

Dash of salt

1-12oz can evaporated milk

1 ½ tsp. vanilla

4 eggs, well beaten

1 stick of butter

2 c. flaked coconut

1 c. chopped pecans

2-9" unbaked pie shells

 

Combine cornstarch, sugar, cocoa and salt in small bowl.  If using German Chocolate bar, put in a saucepan at low heat to melt.  Add evaporated milk, vanilla, and butter until melted and thoroughly blend.  Add beaten eggs, stir in coconut and pecans.  Divide batter between the two pie shells.  Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for about 35-40 minutes, or until edges of pie are set.

It's mainly sugar, eggs, chocolate, coconut, and pecans.  Oh shoot, I just realized that I forgot to add the vanilla.  Hope it tastes ok!
