Frozen Samoa Pie is the cold treat you crave on a hot day. You won't be disappointed!Frozen Samoa Pie is pretty much a chocolate-caramel-coconut lover’s dream. Layers upon layers of those delectable flavors, in one frozen treat!

Oh, friends. Do I have a treat for you today! Anyone who knows me knows that I can get down on some Samoas. I mean, chocolate. Caramel. Shortbread. And coconut. What’s not to love? Personally, I think the only thing missing is the sweet crunch of some tasty pecans.

So today, I solved that problem by whipping up a Frozen Samoa Pie. This Frozen Samoa Pie is made with shortbread crust, creamy cheesecake-ish layers, and a surprise filling layer heavy on the homemade caramel sauce, toasted coconut, and chocolate. What more could you ask for in a pie, really?

Frozen Samoa Pie is pretty much a Samoa lover's dream. Layers upon layers of those familiar Girl Scout cookie flavors, in one frozen treat!

The thing I really love about this pie is all the complex toasty flavors. By baking the shortbread crust for a few minutes, you get to an almost brown butter sugar cookie level of nuttiness. Then you add in roasted pecans and toasted coconut, which add layer upon layer of complex flavor – as toasting pretty much anything will do. Add in the creamy tang of cream cheese based filling and chocolate – well – everything is better with chocolate, right?

This is the kind of pie you make for company and then quietly devour by yourself. The kind of pie that makes a bad day better, a good day spectacular. I make a lot of desserts, you guys, and I love a lot of desserts. But when you present me with a pie that has all my favorite Girl Scout Cookie flavors, plus the crunch of toasted pecans? I’m done for. DONE FOR. I bet you will be too.

Frozen Samoa Pie is topped with homemade caramel sauce. The pecan crumble adds a satisfying crunch.
If you’ve never toasted pecans, or any nut, for that matter, before, I have a great guide; Fundamentals: How to Toast Nuts. It covers pretty much every baking and snacking nut you can think of.

You really should always take the time to toast (or roast) nuts. (And coconut for that matter, but I loooove me some toasty coconut.) Flavors of both nuts and coconut become so much more complex once they’ve been heated up a little bit. It’s worth the extra time, and so long as you use parchment paper or a baking sheet liner, it’s hardly any extra cleanup.

Especially in a pie like this. Frozen Samoa Pie may be the best dessert of summer yet. Yeah, I said it.

  5. Vince says:

    Looks delicious!  Does the crumble stay crispy or does the filling make it mushy?

    1. Jamie says:

      Hi, Vince! The crumble should have a nice texture, not mushy. I hope you enjoy it!

  8. Keith says:

    Looks awesome and can’t wait to try it.  One question–did you toast the pecans and coconut prior to incorporating it into the crumble (so it would be baked twice)?

    1. Jamie says:

      Hi, Keith! Yes, the coconuts and pecans are toasted before. I hope you enjoy it!

  9. Michelle @ Modern Acupuncture says:

    1. Jamie says:

      I think cake is good anytime–especially when it’s not your birthday! Thank you, Michelle!

    I saw this recipe and had to make it right now! Waiting on my crust and crumb to cool before making the filling. I can’t wait!! I make something similar with cool whip and sour cream with different topping or filling. Thanks for something different, I love Samoa cookies their my favorite .
