Hawaiian Pie / Chocolate Haupia Pie

Crust:

1/2 cup macadamia nuts, roasted and unsalted

1 cup cold butter

2 cups of flour

1/4 cup brown sugar

 

Filling:

10 ounces semi-sweet chocolate

2 (10 ounce) cans of coconut milk, unsweetened

1 1/2 cups milk

1 1/2 cups sugar

1/2 cup cornstarch

1 1/2 cup water

Shaved chocolate and whipped cream for garnish, optional

 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coarsely chop the nuts with a hand chopper or in a food processor. Do no make them too fine. If you use a food processor be careful. If you process too long you will get nut butter! Cut the two sticks of butter into cubes. With a pastry blender cut the butter, sugar, and chopped nuts into the flour until incorporated. The mixture will be dry and crumbly. Pat the mixture into the bottom and about an inch up the sides of a 13 by 9 inch baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes or until golden.

While the crust is baking, whisk the coconut milk, milk and sugar together in a saucepan and bring to t boil over medium-high heat. In a bowl, whisk the cornstarch and water until well blended. When the coconut milk mixture comes to a boil reduce the heat and simmer. While whisking, slowly pour the cornstarch mixture into the coconut mixture. Cook, whisking constantly until the mixture thickens. Melt the chocolate in a glass bowl in the microwave. This usually takes about 1 minute. After 1 minute remove from the microwave and stir until all the pieces are melted. If more microwaving is needed do it in short 15 to 30 second pulses, stirring after each. Remove half the coconut mixture into the bowl of melted chocolate and mix well. Allow the mixtures to cool slightly to thicken a little. Pour the chocolate mixture onto the baked crust and spread evenly. Top the chocolate layer with the remaining coconut mixture and chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour. If you do not allow the two mixtures to cool slightly they mix together. Garnish with shaved dark chocolate and whipped cream if you wish.
