I have made this twice for dinner parties. I didn't bother making my own caramel sauce but used store bought and topped with salted peanuts. The crust is too hard and slips off the plate when using a fork, it is delicious however. I will make my own pie crust, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon the next time I make it. It was delicious and everyone really likes having their own individual desert.
