No-Mix Samoas Pie

Ingredients

For the crust

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), melted
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (104 grams)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (157 grams)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

For the filling

  • 1 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 3/4 cup salted caramel sauce
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted (for drizzling on top after pie is done)

Directions

For the crust

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a 9-inch pie dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Combine melted butter, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla extract in a bowl and mix until smooth.
  3. Add the flour and salt and stir until jut combined.
  4. Pour batter into prepared pie dish and smooth the top.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes; the crust will not appear done, but that’s okay because it’s going back in the oven.
  6. Remove pie crust from oven.

For the filling

  1. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top of pie crust.
  2. Sprinkle coconut on top of chocolate chips
  3. Pour sweetened condensed milk on top of coconut.
  4. Pour caramel on top.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes.
  6. Remove pie from oven.
  7. Using a spoon or Ziploc bag or pastry bag, drizzle melted chocolate on top of pie in long, parallel lines.
  8. Allow pie to cool at least 4 hours or overnight before serving; pie needs plenty of time to set.
  9. Keep pie in airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
