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?
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!
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
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!
Gone are the times of sticky messes (I need to tell you about my marshmallow creation a few years back… oh boy… I was almost banned from baking for eternity), as long as you grab some PAM Cooking Spray! Don't make a mess this holiday season – or any time – be prepared, and whip out your secret weapon whenever you need to! Need some baking inspiration? Check out PAM's recipes!
