This is a recipe I sampled once years ago at an Amish bakery in Illinois. There are some Amish pies that are rare and that you don't stumble across in every Amish bakery. For instance, in a little Mennonite bakery outside Sunbury, PA I once found chocolate shoofly pie. Man, that was awesome. You don't run into that often. Ditto for German Chocolate Pie. Mmmmm, I love German Chocolate Cake,but I almost like the pie better. It's pure bliss in a crust. Recipe tester Barbara concurs. Here is what she had to say about the pie:
"Oh, my, this pie is amazing! The addition of coconut and pecans gives this very dense chocolate pie a taste we loved. You do have to wait for it to cool before slicing and serving. I put just a little whipped cream on top, was truly delicious and will put this recipe in my personal file of something to make again. I really got my chocolate fix from a little slice of this pie. Winner in our minds..."
So, make it and see if you agree!
