If you’re still trying to decide on the perfect pie for Thanksgiving dinner, then look no further =). This german chocolate pie is crazy good. Just imagine pecan pie with chocolate chips and shredded coconut. Let me assure you, it’s as good as it sounds! I don’t make pies as often as I’d like simply because it takes Jordan and I for-ever to eat an entire pie. Well, maybe not forever, but at least a week or so and by that time I’m sick of even my favorite pies haha. But since it’s pie-season, I made one anyway. Soo good! Pecan pie used to be my favorite pie. I say used to be because although I still really like it, I’m not sure I could pick a favorite now. I like them all! 😉 This pie is pretty sweet so a little goes a long way, but that makes it even more perfect for Thanksgiving because by the time you get to dessert you’re so stuffed you can only hold a small piece anyway, right?? Enjoy!
