Grandma Chunkie’s Chocolate Pie Recipe

This chocolate pie recipe is our family tradition thanks to my fun Great-Grandma Chunkie! I remember Grandma Chunkie as a fun little spit fire with pink tinted hair and always wearing a cute apron. I guess she was heavy as a child and that’s where the name came from. All my great-aunts and uncles had nicknames. One was even called Aunt No No.

I loved going to Grandma Chunkie’s house, because she was always baking something tasty. She grew up working in her family’s restaurant in Tulsa. She also let me play with all her jewelry (clip on earrings!) and make-up. I loved hearing stories of her travels and times when she dated a pro-wrestler… the kind like you see now on the WWF! Ha.

She would tell me crazy stories, like how you had to be careful traveling back when she was a girl because Indians would kidnap you. Or the time she and her brother ran away when they were really little. They tied themselves together so they wouldn’t get lost (or kidnapped by Indians) on the train. Who knows what was the truth? Ha!

Born in 1908 as Lily Maybell, Grandma Chunkie later changed her name to Lillian.

Grandma Chunkie was also a sister of Christ! When I would go on ski trips, she would pray on a cloth and make me put it in my pocket to keep me safe:-) In college, I would get these little prayer cloths in the mail every now and then.

This photo of Grandma Chunkie is probably from the 1940’s. I think she is alive and well in my daughter! I see a lot of Grandma Chunkie in my own little spit fire.

 

The best Chocolate Pie

Grandma Chunkie made THE best pies! Usually for our Thanksgiving dinners, we would have about three pumpkin pies along with banana, lemon and chocolate. I never liked pumpkin pie, so she always made me my own mini chocolate pie. A Thanksgiving tradition, I started with my kids. I’ve posted this recipe before, but in case you missed it, here it is again. Enjoy!!

Easy No Bake Chocolate Mint Pie

I have an addiction to mint desserts! I’ve been making this easy No Bake Chocolate Mint Pie for years and finally had a chance to share it here on my website for you! With a tasty OREO cookie crust topped with whipped cream and cookies, this no bake chilled dessert is perfect for summer parties.

Celebrate St. Patrick’s day with this Chocolate Mint Pie or my favorite Shamrock Shake! I’m not joking when I say it’s addicting. This chocolate mint pie is supposed to serve eight people, but in reality… I could eat the whole thing. So does that mean it really serves one? ha!

What I love about this recipe is that I can use my Young Living Peppermint Vitality Essential Oil. If you don’t have it, use mint extract. Either way, your Chocolate Mint Pie is going to taste amazing!

Delicious Homemade Coconut Cream Pie

Desserts are a funny thing and not everyone loves Coconut Cream Pie, but I bet you’ll like this one! We all have our favorite desserts, you know the ones you would pick over anything else. Maybe it’s your grandmas famous pound cake, or the crazy lady down the streets delicious cookies. Well for me, hands down I choose pie! I really like pretty much any pie, but a chilled Coconut Cream Pie will never get turned down by me.

After trying out several different Coconut Cream Pie recipes, this is the best in my opinion. Not too sweet, not to thick but just right! The only thing to argue about is how long to let it chill before cutting into it. Sometimes patience is the most difficult part of making a pie!

How to make a Coconut Cream Pie

Homemade Coconut Cream Pie Recipe. A mouth-watering easy dessert wonderful for any occasion!

What you’ll need for making Coconut Cream Pie…
Filling Recipe
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut plus extra 1/4 cup for garnish
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract (Mexican vanilla is by far better tasting! It is all I use)
Whipping Cream Recipe
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla (again Mexican Vanilla is the best)
Crust Recipe 
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup canola oil
  • 1/3 cup milk
Before you begin with the coconut cream pie filling, get your crust ready. If you do not feel up to making homemade pie crust, no problem! Get one already made, and follow the directions on the package for using with a cream pie recipe. If you are feeling wild and crazy, follow this Coconut Cream Pie recipe below.

 

Coconut Cream Pie

This creamy, fresh homemade Coconut Cream Pie Recipe is a mouth-watering dessert wonderful for any occasion! 

Coconut Cream Pie Filling

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut plus extra 1/4 cup for garnish
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract (Mexican vanilla is by far better tasting! It is all I use.)
  •  

Pie Topping

  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla (Mexican Vanilla is the best)
  •  

Pie Crust

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup canola oil
  • 1/3 cup milk

Pie Crust

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, mix all pie crust ingredients with a fork until well combined, then roll it into a ball.

  2. Wet your counter tops and put a layer of wax paper down. The wet counter will help the wax paper stick, so it is not moving all over the place while you roll out the crust.

  3. Put another piece of wax paper on top of the dough. Again this helps with sticking.

  4. Roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thick. Make it big enough to fit into your  pie pan.

  5. Once it is the right size, remove the top piece of wax paper and place the pie pan on top of the crust and flip it all over.
  6. Remove the other piece of wax paper. Pat down the crust and crimp your edges nice and pretty. Poke tons of holes in the crust with a fork.
  7. Bake for 8-10 min. until the crust is just golden brown.

Pie Filling

  1. Combine 1/2 cup sugar and cornstarch in a heavy saucepan. Whisk in half-and-half and coconut milk. Bring this to a light simmer.
  2. Now temper the beaten yolks with the hot mixture. Then gradually whisk eggs entirely into the hot mixture.

  3. Bring this all to a boil over medium heat, waiting for it to get nice and thick, stirring constantly so it does not burn.
  4. Boil 1 minute then remove from heat.

  5. Stir in butter, coconut, and vanilla. Let this sit for about 15 minutes and cool down.
  6. Fill up your cooked pie crust. Let the pie get to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate.
  7. Add whipped cream topping to chilled pie.

Pie Topping

  1. Beat whipping cream at high speed with an electric mixer while gradually adding the sugar and vanilla.
  2. Once you have soft, but defined peaks stop mixing.
  3. Spread the fluffy cream on the chilled pie and then top with toasted coconut.
  4. To toast the coconut spread about 1/4 cup of coconut on a cookie sheet and put it in a 400 degree oven for 5-8 min. Watch it closely because it will burn quickly! Let it cool before you sprinkle it on the whipped cream!
