Recipe for Patti's 1880 Restaurant Boo-Boo Pie


    Patti's 1880 Restaurant Boo-Boo Pie

    A fudgy, brownie-like layer forms the crust for this diet-busting "pie" (it's worth the calories).

    2 2/3 cups coconut (one 7 ounce bag)
    1 (14 1/2 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
    1/2 cup butter
    3 ounces unsweetened chocolate
    3/4 cup granulated sugar
    1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    3 eggs
    1 tablespoon vanilla extract

    Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9-inch pie plate.

    Mix together coconut and milk; set aside.

    Melt butter and chocolate together in a microwave set at medium heat (this should take about 3 minutes). Stir until smooth. Combine with sugar, flour, eggs and vanilla extract.

    Spoon this chocolate batter into the pie pan and spread over the bottom of the pan. Spread coconut-milk mixture on top, leaving a 1/2-inch border between it and the edge so the chocolate layer can form a crust as the pie bakes. Bake 25 minutes.

    Serves 8.
