I make this every year around the holidays and I've been using my silicone muffin pans to turn the recipe into delicious mini-pies! I cut the pie crusts into smaller circles and press them into the baking cups. You'll need to play around with the bake time, as the mini-pies cook up faster than a large pie. I, too, end up with extra caramel filling at the end, but rather than toss it, I folded it into some crescent roll dough and baked them up as a bonus treat!
Richly delicious. Everyone raved about it, especially my sister and law and grand daughters. I recommend serving very small slices because of the sweetness and richness. I will definitely make this pie again!
Excellent Pie! One of this Year's Favorites at our Thanksgiving. I have made the recipe four times and my "critics" say it is a little chewy with 28 caramels. So, I have reduced the amount by half to 14 of Wurther's brand with GREAT results. I also found there was too much caramel sauce, and discarded the extra.
Awesome! I too had extra caramel/pecan filling that spilled over top. I've already had to make another one last night.
Delicious Thanksgiving pie! Not a crumb was left. Rich and moist.
good--very rich! the recipe made a lot of the caramel/pecan filling so mine spilled over the top (maybe don't use all of the filling?)
I followed the directions only adding foil to protect the crust a bit sooner. It was so good! Everyone raved about it! Not a scrap left.
