    I don't think I can/could finish this pie myself.

    "I don't think I can/could finish this pie myself." Both can/could are correct?

    Yes. Their meaning is slightly different but they are both grammatical and natural.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
