Can You Make an Almond Joy Pie?

"Can you make an Almond Joy pie?" This was the question that my son-in-law, Mike, asked. Of course, for him, I would try anything. I was sure if I just typed in "Almond Joy pie" in Google, I would find something—and I did. I found this recipe on lifeloveandsugar.com.

The pie was easy to make, and it didn't require baking. I did tweak two things in the recipe, which I will reveal to you, but I'm pretty sure it wouldn't have made a difference in the taste.

Once again, this pie is so easy to make, especially with a store-bought pie crust. Even if you think you can't bake, you can!

I'm also pretty sure you could type in the name of any candy bar and find a pie that would go with it. Give it a try, and see what you can come up with.

How I Changed the Recipe

The recipe actually tells how to make your own Oreo Cookie crust, but I chose to buy an already-made Oreo Cookie crust from the store, which saved a lot of time and money on the leftover cookies I would have had.

The original recipe also called for 1/2 teaspoon of coconut extract and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract. I didn't want to buy coconut extract because I didn't think I would have much use it after making this pie—so I just used a whole teaspoon of vanilla extract, instead.

Cook Time

Prep time: 13 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 23 min
Yields: Serves 8 to 10 people

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp + 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 (14-oz. can) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/2 cups flaked coconut
  • A handful almond slices
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Oreo Cookie crust, store-bought

Directions

  1. Whisk the cornstarch and 1/4 cup of the milk together in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Add remaining milk, sugar, sweetened condensed milk, coconut and vanilla extract to a pan and whisk over medium heat until well combined and warm.
  3. Add the cornstarch mixture to the coconut mixture.
  4. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly with a whisk. It will begin to thicken.
  5. Once boiling, stir constantly for about 2 minutes more or until fully thickened.
  6. Pour mixture into crust, then refrigerate, uncovered, until cooled and firm.
  7. Once pie is firm, drizzle with the chocolate sauce, then sprinkle additional coconut flakes and enough almond slices to cover the pie. Refrigerate and serve with whipped cream. Refrigerate any leftovers.

        Hi Peggy. I found a lot of crumb crusts that are available along with the graham cracker crusts, even the white cookie crumb crusts. I love Almond Joy candy bars too, ever since I was little. Of course, there are not many candy bars I don't like. lol Thanks for sharing your comments, I appreciate them.

        Blessings to you.

        Almond Joy was one of my favorite candy bars when I occasionally would purchase one. Making an entire pie with those flavors would be amazing! Thanks for sharing your recipe with us. I did not realize that Oreo cookie crusts were available to be purchased in stores. Nice to know!

        Good grief, I must have been in a rush to call you by your last name, so sorry! I guess because I can remember Rachel when looking you up but have to keep saying Alba in the back of my mind and then call you that. So embarrassed! I talk about you often to my husband and all your wonderful recipes.

        There are not many of yours I haven't tried! He loves them too.

        Hi Liz, Thank you for your nice comment and visit. You can certainly make you own Oreo cookie crust. As I said in my article the original recipe did have it. You just need 2 cups of crush cookie crumbs and 4 tablespoons of melted butter; mix them together and press them into your 9" pie plate. Enjoy!

        Blessings to you.

        Oh my, this looks very delicious. I wish I can still eat rich desserts. An exception once in a while will not hurt.

        This looks very tasty. I think in the UK we would have to make our own Oreo cookie crust, as I have not seen it.

        Mm yum! I have been cheating with the International Almond Joy drink in my coffee and now I see this! Well I have to try it but I am doing well in my numbers and think if I don't try to eat it all I will be OK!

        Wonder what using coconut milk would taste like? I only ask because I have a half can left over with nowhere to go. I made coconut pancakes today or should I say pancakes using coconut flour and coconut milk. Not bad but nothing compared to this. Just trying something low carb.

        Will have to wait til Thanksgiving to fix this or I know I will wolf it down all by myself!

        Thank you Alba for another great recipe!
