  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold lard
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons ice water
  • 4 ounces German sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 cup flaked coconut

  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

Preparation

Step 1

In a small bowl, mix flour and salt; cut in lard until crumbly. Gradually add ice water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed.
Shape into a disk; wrap in plastic wrap.
Refrigerate 30 minutes or overnight.
Preheat oven to 400°.
On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate.
Trim pastry to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge.
Line unpricked pastry with a double thickness of foil. Fill with pie weights, dried beans or uncooked rice.
Bake 11-13 minutes or until bottom is lightly browned.
Remove foil and weights; bake 6-8 minutes longer or until light brown. Cool on a wire rack. Reduce oven setting to 350°.
In a microwave, melt chocolates in a large bowl; stir until smooth. Cool slightly.
Whisk in milk, egg yolks and vanilla; stir in pecans.
Pour into crust. Bake 16-19 minutes or until set. Cool 1 hour on a wire rack.
Meanwhile, in a small heavy saucepan, combine brown sugar, cream and butter.
Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar.
Remove from heat.
In a small bowl, whisk a small amount of hot mixture into egg yolks; return all to pan, whisking constantly.
Cook 2-3 minutes or until mixture thickens and a thermometer reads 160°, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat.
Stir in coconut and vanilla; cool 10 minutes.
Pour over filling; sprinkle with pecans.
Refrigerate 4 hours or until cold.
