german chocolate pie

Math. It’s never been my favorite (in fact, I’m pretty sure I suffer from math anxiety). However, there is one mathematically-related holiday that has never disappointed me: pi day. (If you are a normal person who celebrates normal non-math-related-holidays, read more about “pi day” here. And start celebrating now.)
This year to celebrate, I’m sharing one of my all-time favorite pie recipes: German Chocolate Pie. This rich coconutty concoction was shared with me by a lady who baked pies her whole life for a local restaurant. Needless to say, it was a best seller.
