  1. The recipe was easy to make although I would recommend using deep dish pie shells. The regular pie shells overflowed. Also, it didn't seem like it cooked completely - I even cooked the pies for an extra 10 minutes. I even stored them in the refrigerator. They were more of a pudding consistancy in the middle - VERY RICH. If you don't LOVE chocolate you probably won't want more than a bite or two.

  2. I used only 12 ounces of evaporated milk and 3 large eggs with a little extra sprinkle of coconut on top and baked in deep dish pie crust. I was so pleased to find this recipe since the Reed Bakery in Pasadena Tx had closed. It was a wonderful bakery!

  3. I cooked these pies for an extra 10 minutes and it was still runny. It didn't set at all. Terrible recipe. I'll be looking for another one.

  4. This recipes is similar to one in our family that's been around since the 60's. Uses evaporated milk not condensed like many recipes for German Chocolate Pie's call for. Those almost always turn out too pudding like and sticky in comparison to this rich but custardy textured pie. We usually made it with 1/2 cup of dark chocolate bits instead of the cocoa but either works. Also our basic recipe did not make two pies only one lovely large 9-10 inch pie. Once when I could not find the recipe I forgot how much chocolate and tried to literally kill people by chocolate. There were those who actually loved it. Try this one....and do use butter!!!

  5. Very good,quick and easy to make but very rich. The two pies should serve 16 instead of 12 as 1/8 of a pie is enough as rich as it is! I froze one and had one for company for lunch. I ended up having to get the other one out of the freezer as they want more!! I two more cooling to freeze then take to a potluck next week.Doubt if we get a slice!
