This Almond Joy Pie, or chocolate, almond and coconut pie makes its own crust and creates a delicious custard middle with the coconut and almonds on the top.
I'm not normally a fan of coconut, but in the case of this pie I make an exception. There isn't really anything you can replace the coconut with, you could leave it out, but then it wouldn't be an Almond Joy Pie.
Put this out on your holiday dessert table and it's sure to be a hit!
What will I need to complete this recipe?
- Butter or margarine
- White sugar
- Vanilla extract
- Bisquick, but self rising flour will work if necessary
- Cocoa powder
- Whole milk
- Coconut - I used sweetened, but the pie is sweet, so if you prefer you can use unsweetened.
- Slivered or sliced almonds - not whole!
You will also need a 10-inch pie pan, a cookie sheet, and tin foil. All of the ingredients are simply beaten together, poured into the pie pan, placed on a cookie sheet lined with tin foil and baked at 350 degrees for approximately 55 minutes.
What is the texture of the pie?
This pie is mixed altogether and poured into the pan. As it bakes, the bisquick goes to the bottom forming a crust. The eggs, milk and sugar form a custard in the middle, and the coconut and almonds rise to the top like a pecan pie. The chocolate is all throughout the pie.
How should I store this pie?
Cover well with saran wrap and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
