  • Gradually stir about 1 cup of mixture into egg yolks. Return mixture to saucepan; bring to boiling. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. Stir in vanilla.
  • Turn the hot pie filling into the baked pie shell.
  • In another saucepan, combine the beaten egg, evaporated milk, the 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/4 cup butter or margarine. Cook and stir over medium heat just till the mixture is thickened and bubbly.
  • Stir in the coconut and pecans. Spread the pecan mixture evenly over the chocolate filling. Cool the pie on a wire rack; chill thoroughly.
  • Note: By cooling the pie & crust on a wire rack, the air is able to get under the pie, That way the crust will not get soggy, it will stay flakey & firm.

Notes
