Picture1lnjnzsio

I hope you all enjoyed Pi Day today!  To honor that unique symbol that starts with 3.14 and goes to infinity.  I decided to make a pie!  Many southerners love pecan pies.  It just makes sense because the south has numerous pecan trees.  Why not kick up the pecan pie and make it sweeter.  The caramel makes this pie a hit!  Here’s what you need!

  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust
  • 36 individually wrapped caramels
  • 1/4 cup (half stick) butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup pecan halves

1.  Use a pie crust and place on the bottom of the pie pan.
