The Bake-Off is Coming: Chocolate and Coconut Pecan Custard Pie

Chocolate Coconut pecan custard pie

CakeSpy Note: OMG! The 46th Annual Pillsbury Bake-Off is coming! Since I so deeply loved attending the 45th Bake-Off, I thought I would get you excited early by sharing some of the finalists' recipes. Narrowed down from zillions of entries, I'll profile some of the 100 finalists--but of course, based on the subject matter of this site, I will focus on sweets! You can follow them by clicking the bakeoff tag below the post to see which ones have been posted so far. Enjoy! 

 This is one of my favorite entries yet. Why? Um, refer to the title of the recipe. It's got all things delicious! And it has only five ingredients. It practically bakes itself! THank you to Lauren Katz of Ashburn, Virginia, for dreaming it up.
