If you are looking for the perfect cool treat this spring, look no further than this caramel pie. There is a lot to love about this pie. For starters, this recipe makes 2 pies. That is definitely a win in my book. My grandmother (my mom’s mom) was a phenominal cook. Fried chicken, fried cornbread, home made cream corn and chocolate cake were a few of her winners. Well pretty much anything she made was a winner.
This caramel pie is certainly that. The two creamy layers sandwich a caramel, toasted coconut pecan filling that is the perfect combo of nutty and sweet. You know how most kids go through that phase that they hate nuts in anything. I went through that as a kid so it was not till years later I discovered what had been missing out on with this dessert. Since then I take any leftovers home with me when my mom makes this pie! Mother’s Day s around the corner and I cannot recommend this pie enough!
I hope you all have a great weekend!
