Tasty German Chocolate Pie

READY IN: 4hrs 25mins
Recipe by HokiesMom

From TOH Holiday magazine submitted by D. Clay. A luscious pie that has a beautiful presentation. Different from the other pies listed on this site and possibly a bit more labor intensive. Prep time does not include time to bake the pastry shell. Passive time includes the time necessary to chill in the refrigerator.
