Caramel Pecan Pie

November 25, 2019Teresa

Oh my. Caramel Pecan Pie is rich, decadent and absolutely divine! This amazing Pecan Pie recipe includes caramels in the filling. Pecan Pie never tasted so well as it does made this way. No kidding. Every bite is beyond spectacular. This delicious pie will have you drooling, ooohing and aaaahhhhing over scrumptious nibble.

I made this fantastic pie for a game night for the college age kids in our church. One of the other care groups in our church also hosted and brought food. I brought a couple of these amazing pies and asked people to sample it to see what they thought. Well, one of our friends sampled a piece of Caramel Pecan Pie. He told someone else. That person told someone else. Well, you get the picture. Before I knew it the pies were gone!

Our college gang is used to my cooking by now. I try a lot of stuff out on them. Whenever I bring a homemade pie they are usually pretty quick to dig in. Truthfully, they love when I make exotic salads and homemade bread. But they don’t mind the simple fare like a fruit platter or a hummus tray with veggie dippers.

However, homemade pie brings everything to a different level. One of the gals asked me last Sunday if I would teach her how to make homemade pie crust. She’s one that needs to feel the texture of the dough rather than just looking at pictures or following a recipe. I understand. I’m the same way. I told her we’d set up a time after I’m done with all my holiday cookie baking this year. Hopefully around the first week of December. Then I can catch by breath and get back to fun stuff like this.

If you haven’t completed your holiday menu for Thanksgiving or Christmas, I highly recommend Caramel Pecan Pie. It’s really not all that difficult and it turned out spectacularly well. I used a store bought crust to save time. Obviously you can make your own if you prefer. But this version of Pecan Pie can’t be beat.

Wow your family and friends this holiday season by making this awesome pie. You may find it on your regular dessert menu from here on out.

Unwrap caramels. Place caramels in a medium sized sauce pan and bring to a low heat. (Don’t heat too high or the caramels with scorch).

Pour filling into prepared pie shell. Do this right before putting the pie in the oven. If you let it sit for several minutes before putting in the oven, the crust will get soggy.

Instructions
  1. Place unwrapped caramels, butter and half-and-half in a medium-sized saucepan.

  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Allow caramels to cool about 10 minutes in saucepan before using in recipe.

  6. Flute edges.
  7. Set aside.
  8. Combine sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and salt.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: If you cook the caramels on too high of a heat, they will scorch.

NOTE: If you add the hot caramel mixture to the egg mixture too quickly, the eggs will scramble from the heat!

NOTE: My recipe was still soupy at 45 minutes. I baked the pie for one hour 10 minutes.

NOTE: Don't add the filling to the pie shell until right before putting the pie in the oven. Otherwise, if the filling sits in the crust for several minutes before baking, you'll end up with a soggy crust.
