Oh yeah!!! It's that good. I had to rename this once I made it. The old name does not do it justice. I've had this recipe a long time and finally got around to makin' it today. And... I will make it again.

We can see why Peggi calls this pie heaven - each bite is heavenly! It's a very unique dessert. It has a cool and creamy center, followed by layers of sweet caramel and a crunchy coconut pecan mix. Easy to prepare, you will have a hard time not going back for seconds. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Heaven in a Pie Plate

Step-by-Step

  1. If using ready-made pie crust then thaw it out. With a fork, poke holes all over the crust. Place it in the oven at 400 degrees for 10-13 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Place butter in frying pan and melt. Add the coconut and pecans. Stir together and toast until golden brown. Set aside to cool.
  3. Mix cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk with mixer.
  4. Fold in Cool Whip with a wooden spoon.
  5. Layer in each, deep dish pie shell 1/4 cream cheese mixture.
  6. Add 1/4 of the caramel.
  7. Add 1/4 pecan mixture. Do this 2 times for each ingredient and each pie shell.
  8. Drizzle a little caramel on top for appearance.
  9. Freeze (can keep up to 6 months). Note: I didn't freeze the one we ate today. Not perfectly set, but time will tell on that. We cut into it. By the way... There's an extra one in the freezer if you stop by.

Guacamole and chips just taste a little better with a margarita. Sitting on the back patio on a warm day is a tad more relaxing sipping on a frozen margarita. They are traditionally made with tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. One reason we love margaritas, though, is you can adjust ingredients to suit your […]
