A decadent shortbread crust, chocolate mousse center, and a caramel coconut topping, with chocolate drizzle. This is inspired by your favorite Girl Scout cookie in pie form! Plus a collection of other pies to help you celebrate Pi Day!
You guys…it is my favorite day of the year! Hahaha that might be a little bit of an exaggeration, but I do seriously love Pi day. When I was in high school I had a Pi symbol necklace. I know…totally admitting my dorkiness. But I will own it for this one time because Pi day is that important to me. Usually on pie day I spend my day looking forward to bedtime. Scratch that…that is almost every day.
BUT…on Pi day, after the kids are in bed, the hubs and I turn on “Life of Pi” and we eat pie, usually key lime for me and coconut cream for him. This year we aren’t together for Pi day, and so I will be eating pity pie. And will probably be watching the Bachelor. So not my normal year, and thus not my normal pie.
I wanted a Samoa Girl Scout Cookie. The coconut on here did not turn out as crunchy as the girl scout cookie coconut, but you could use a toasted coconut instead of the sweetened coconut shreds. Up to you. It was pretty tasty, very rich, and also kind of hard to cut. I am putting a disclaimer on here.
THIS PIE IS MESSY. Delicious. But messy.
The coconut caramel is so yummy, but you have to cut through it, and this means the chocolate mousse may smush out the sides a bit. It still tastes good though. Promise. So good.
Go ahead, cut yourself a nice big slice.
I realize this recipe is a little longer/more complicated than you are used to here on EZPZ, but let me tell you, it takes some time because there is cooling and setting up that needs to happen. But the actual making of the pie is pretty easy!
Now this pie is great, but we would not be celebrating pie day properly if we did include a bunch of other amazing pies, so here you go!!! A whole lot of pie-liciousness from some of my favorite food bloggers!
