My family loves this! I have received a lot of compliments on this pie and it even placed at my county fair in 2010. Super yummy just the way it is or you can have it with a scoop of french vanilla ice cream while it is still warm.

    Caramel Drizzle: After pie has cooled for 30 minutes, melt caramels and milk in microwave safe dish, microwave until smooth, keep a close eye on this so you do not over cook, I use 15 second increments, drizzle about half over top of pie, sprinkle with chopped pecans, lightly drizzle remaining caramel over nuts. You can garnish with whole pecans if you like.
