This Caramel Pecan Pie has been around on my site since November of 2011, but I figured since most of you weren’t following my blog way back then that I’d take new photos and share it again!

Because when something is this good, it just needs to be shared.

How To Make Caramel Pecan Pie

What I love about this pie is how easy it is to make! All you need to do is create a silky smooth caramel sauce, which we start with caramels… so it’s not difficult. Then we whisk that in with some eggs, flour and vanilla and fold in the pecans!

You’ll start the oven at a higher temperature to create that caramelized top layer of the pie, then you’ll lower the temperature and finish baking until the pie has set.

If your crust begins to brown too quickly, loosely place some tinfoil around the edges and continue baking.

The finished result is a delightfully sliceable pecan pie that has hints of caramel and that trusted pecan pie flavor.

This would be the perfect time to drizzle that Instant Pot Dulce de Leche over the top!

    This pie sounds really yummy. I always thought I had a pecan pie that was up a notch....I use half to three -fourths real maple syrup with the corn syrup! You got me beat with this caramel version!!!!!!

    This post cracked me up! My strong-willed child was first so when the second easy going cherubic baby came along it was quite confusing as I had already known I wasn't going to win any mother of the year awards. Well with this second one....I could have. By then I realized that they are born the way they are....quiet,loud,sweet or aggressive,,,,they come already assembled. So refreshing to hear a Mom be honest....love that!!! Your blog is just a delight! Thanks!
    1. Thanks Gretel! I fully believe they are born the way they are! All 4 of my kids are so so different, it really boggles my mind! Thanks for your sweet comment! :)

    Absolutely crying over how to control your screaming child. I use my spray bottle to control my dog's barking (same thing, right?) It works! I tried using it to get my teenager daughter out of bed (this is the one my mother wished on me) - doesn't work quite as well. She got out of bed but she still missed the bus - can't figure that one out to this day. Your recipes sound wonderful - I've printed several and will try at least one tonight! I look forward to future posts!

    So glad you liked the recipe! It is a little time consuming to unwrap the caramels, but worth it in the end! I am not sure how a jar of caramel sauce would turn out, if you try it let me know!

    Thanks for your recipe. I made it for Thanksgiving and it was a huge hit. I wonder...instead of needing to unwrap all those caramels, would a jar of carmel sauce work instead?

    Oh Shawn...love you to death! The super soaker idea, totally stealing that. Although, I'm sure a slice of this would definitely calm my nerves!
