Once upon a time Sara Lee made a frozen Fruit of the Forest Pie...and it was very, very good. And then it went away, and everyone was very sad. But fortunately the story does not end there!
The combination of apple slices, rhubarb and summer berries is one of the best fruit combinations ever, and it needed to live on!
Some call this "Fruit of the Forest Pie", but I also call it "Fruit of the Garden Pie", because I always save a secret stash of the best rhubarb, raspberries, strawberries and blueberries from our garden for this traditional Thanksgiving Pie. I know that makes it extra special for us, but it is the most colorful and delicious pie - always a special family favorite at Thanksgiving, or any other time I bake one!
German Chocolate Pecan Pie - a wonderful rich and silky combination of sweet caramel filling, German chocolate, toasted pecans and tender flaked coconut, layered in a buttery and flaky crust. Topped with a drizzle of warm Salted Caramel Sauce, this pie is perfection!
Toasting the pecans increases the nutty flavor and gives the pecans a delicate crunchy bite. A touch of brewed coffee is the secret ingredient in the caramel filling creates the silkiest and creamiest flavor ever. Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce and flaked coconut on top identify this as something special! If you love German Chocolate Cake, you are going to love every bite of this decadent pie!
