German Chocolate Pecan Pie Recipe

It's baking season All year is baking season at our house. So, all year round, we are stocked up on essentials like brown sugar, flour, eggs, and PAM Cooking Spray!

For this recipe, I used the Baking PAM Cooking Spray, but I've also tried Original and Butter. Did you know that PAM Cooking Spray leaves up to 99 percent less residue buildup than margarine or bargain brand cooking sprays do? Crazy-awesome, right?! Plus, it has zero calories per serving, which makes my waistline suuuuper happy.

So, let's put that non-stick theory to the test and bake a pie, shall we?

German Chocolate Pecan Pie Recipe

The girls made this pie entirely on their own! The only thing I did was help with the food processor for chopping the pecans. Unfortunately, it got a little well done because the temperature was accidentally set to 425 instead of 375. Woops! However, everyone that tasted it gave it two thumbs up – so follow the recipe, and it'll be a hit!

You'll need:

PAM Cooking Spray
Pie crust (make your own or buy one like I did)
5 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 large eggs, whisked together and set aside
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1 1/2 cups pecan halves, coarsely chopped
3/4 cup shredded coconut
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

*Recipe from Rachael Ray

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375*F. Spray pie pan with PAM Cooking Spray. Unroll your pie crust and press it into the pan. Pierce a few times with a fork.

Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and cover pie crust with chocolate chips. It's okay if they start to melt! Mmmmm!

Note: I didn't realize that my pie crust was too small for my huge pie pan. Make sure yours match or you won't have much of a crust. ;)

In a saucepan, whisk together butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup over medium heat until melted. In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar mixture and beaten eggs.

Stir in coconut and coarsely chopped pecans. PAM Smart Tip: Spray your food processor with Pam when chopping nuts to make clean up a breeze!

Pour in the filling and bake for about 20 minutes. Let the pie cool completely before slicing.

This is a pretty sticky pie – between the corn syrup, brown sugar, and sweetened coconut flakes, it's one that you'll only need a small slice of to satisfy your sweet tooth. Thanks to PAM Cooking Spray, though, you don't have to worry about even one morsel of this delicious pie sticking to the pan!

  1. I made brown sugar muffins which we LOVE at our house. Unfortunately, my non stick spray did NOT do the job. I ruined almost the entire batch because they stuck to the bottom of the pan:-( We ended up using the muffin bits as an ice cream topping!

  2. I love to bake but I’ve had my share of sticky moments – literally and figuratively. Maybe the time my glass baking dish exploded in the oven and the contents burned onto the interior of the oven. :)

  3. Well here goes…

    This one year I decided to try these new desserts, you know the kind that has every ingredient under the sun and techniques even Julia Child would give the buggy eye to. Well I’m dancing away while whipping up these eggs into a foam, my kitchen looking like an absolute disaster, 1 year old dipping the cat’s tail in chocolate and the dog in a minor fat puppy coma from too much ‘treasures’ falling to the floor, when I trip over a fleeing cat into the bowl of pilfered chocolate and egg white whip, whisk and bowl go flying like seagull splat all over the cabinets, counters, toddler and still passed out dog. Trying desperately NOT to squash the baby I roll my ankle and land almost face first into what appears to be some of the dog’s found (now lost) treasures. Long story shortened…I went to Safeway and settled on a pre-made Turtle chocolate cream pie for the Holiday party. Might also need some therapy and a spa day to boot.

  4. Luckily, I tend to bake ahead for the holidays. If I didn’t the year that I tried to remove my banana and pumpkin breads from their pains – when the ends came out of the pans, but the middles didn’t – would have been a real disaster!

  5. Mine was recently actually, I messed up the ingredients for bread in the bread machine and usually the dough plops right out all nice and purdy, but this time man it stuck to all 4 walls and was basically useless. I had to work extra hard to get it all out and then washing my hands was a nightmare. Sad thing is that the dough I was making was for Thanksgiving dinner rolls to take to my parents house and I had to call them and ask them to pick up some at the store because it was too late make another batch. Then later I BURNED all the dessert, needless to say it was a BAD day of cooking for me!

  6. Made a Bundt cake…. Beautiful cake…. Let me tell you… The one you ooooo and ahhhh over… Didn’t use Pam… Flipped cake over… Yea… The cake was a crumb cake…. Yes it would not come out of the pan,.. Except in crumbs :/
    Note to self… Next time… Use Pam instead of a super brand… How was I to know!?

  7. We like to make a lot of cakes/cupcakes in my house and before using liners or PAM we would just use some oil and flour. Well one time we forgot and the cakes got stuck to the pan and so we literally ate the cake right out of the pan, it was messy!

  8. Mmmmmm you could have stopped at pie crust and chocolate chips lol

  9. I love to bake and make everything from scratch. I decided to make homemade pizzas including the dough. I made a beautiful crust and pie with every topping imaginable. The whole kitchen smelled like a pizzaria. The vultures were circling the kitchen in anticipation. I pulled those beautiful, scrumptious looking pizzas out of the oven and got my pizza cutter out, ready to serve. It was then I realized I forgot to grease my pizza pan. The crust was NOT coming off that pan. Everyone was so disappointed we had a dinner of cheese and toppings. Lol Not at all what I envisioned.

  10. I use PAM too. I do LOVE to bake all year and this pie looks incredible! Yum! Can I have a bite already?!?!

  11. My disaster was calzones. Hubs LOVES my home made calzones from scratch. I mixed the dough, I chopped the veggies, I made the sauce, I assembled what looked like the yummiest, most beautiful pockets of whole grain goodness ever created. I did NOT, however, use PAM. Store brand was on sale, so Ms. Cheapskate extraordinaire that I am, I bought 2 cans.
    When I pulled them out of the oven, they were golden, they were beautiful, they were perfect—they were stuck! Not just stuck, but industrial strength glue stuck! Not only did we end up eating them straight off the pan, but I soaked and scraped that pan for hours before I finally got it clean. My frugality ended up in 2 cans of spray headed to the trash, but hey, I burned a lot of calories getting that superglued dough off the pan. There’s always a bright side!

  12. I have making pies from scratch recently and I forgot to put coating on the pan. I had already put the pie crust in the dish to bake when I remembered. I tried taking it out without ruining the crust but that didnt work

  13. Dear God….
    So I did something to my chocolate chip cookies – not really sure what… It was HORRID. You know how cookie recipes say “ungreased cookie sheets”? Yeah – not so much.
    These cookies were flat – all stuck together – well more like they had melted into one giant hard nasty cookie. Unbelievable. So after about an hour of soaking and another of chiseling (oh yeah that cost me a spatula that day too) I gave up and had discard my beautiful Wilton sheet. BUT – here’s the thing – it was part of a SET!! Now not only is my set incomplete but it mocks me every time I bake. One spritz – one quick coat of PAM and I wouldn’t be grinding my teeth through these anecdotes thinking of the empty spot my tray should be occupying. I have even authorized the lifting of the no appliances or utensils as gifts for mommy to replace it :) Ungreased is a LIE!!

  14. i LOVEPpam. One time my fiance wanted eggs. I think they’re sunny side up? Where they’re runny. Well that doesn’t work out so well when you’re out of Pam. lol I’ve also lost my fair share of cakes, etc. When i’m really tight on money I try save & I’ve learned that I can’t skip out on Pam. The one thing I do though is I bought one thing of the baking Pam & use it on everything. (stove & oven) I’m almost out now. :( lol

    Oooh a helpful hint!!!
    My mom taught me that if your can opener isn’t working that great to spray Pam on it. We did my brother’s & now it’s like new! & one more is if you have a squeaky door, to spray the hinges. She did hers. lol

  16. When making rice krispy treats I spray the spoon with Pam. It helps getting those sticky things in the pan.

  17. I wouldn’t know where to start. I working in bakeries for nearly 20 years, and had some seriously epic messes! I’d have to say that things with burnt spun sugar are the worst. Those pans go STRAIGHT into the trash.

  18. I have had many sticky moments, especially now that i have two little baking helpers. They make every baking moment a sticky one ;) But also a very enjoyable one. lol

  19. I didn’t think I would have to spray a meatloaf pan – wouldn’t there be enough grease in the meat to oil the pan itself? NO. It wasn’t a meatloaf, but just chunks of meat on a plate. It wouldn’t have been so bad, except that it was my first dinner for my inlaws.

  20. Any time you make fresh dough for bread sticks or dinner rolls the dough always sticks to EVERYTHING. If you add too much flour the dough will be too dense so it is something you have to tolerate.

  21. My worst was when I decided to make a chocolate bundt cake and forgot to use PAM beforehand! Needless to say the cake refused to come out of the pan and it took forever to clean all of the nooks and crannies. And as for the cake.. thank goodness for icing to hide mistakes.

  22. Honey. I like honey but it doesn’t like me. Whenever I use it it gets all over everything and makes sticky a work of art.
    Thanks for the contest.

  23. That looks so freaking amazing! We love some German chocolate cake and I can just imagine how good this is!! MMMMMM I want to try it!
