After we welcomed baby Quinn last month, several friends brought us wonderful meals. One of the many yummy things we received was a Chocolate Chip Pie with coconut in it. I’d never had Chocolate Chip Pie and let me tell you, it is some good stuff! I couldn’t find a recipe just like it online so I re-created it. This is such an easy and tasty dessert (that kids and adults will enjoy!).
What You’ll Need:
1 unbaked 9-inch pie crust
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1 cup coconut flakes, toasted
To toast your coconut, just bake at 350 until light brown and fragrant, stirring often.
For the pie…
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Beat eggs until light and foamy. Beat in flour and sugars. Beat in butter and vanilla until creamy. Fold in chocolate chips and toasted coconut flakes.
Spoon into pie crust and bake at 325 degrees for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Best enjoyed with fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream! Even better, drizzle with caramel to make it taste like Samoa pie. YUM!!
