This pie fills my heart with tender memories of my mother.

I've seen a lot of recipes for caramel pie, but not this one and never known anyone who made it either, but my mother - and now me. And she didn't make it often. This pie was saved as a special treat for company or when we asked, "Could we please have a "caramel pie" instead of a birthday cake, PLEASE?!?"

Now, my friends and family beg for this pie - it is HEAVEN to the taste buds!
