So I knew this caramel pie would be something he would go crazy for. It starts out kind of like a cream cheese pie. You mix cream cheese together with sugar to get it all nice and creamy. You can use a store bought or homemade pie crust, but the homemade makes it extra flaky and delicious.
Then mix in caramel to really get the flavors going, and make it not just a vanilla cream pie. Because we want this pie to taste like caramel!
To make this caramel cream pie really creamy, next you fold in homemade whipped cream. It gets fluffy, light and airy. It has lots of caramel flavor, but is not sticky or heavy like caramel usually is.
Pour into your baked pie crust, and you are done. So easy and ready in minutes. You can make the day ahead for your get together, or just put it together in the morning. It does need to set up in the fridge for a few hours, so you can actually cut it into slices.
To serve you top with some of the extra homemade whipped cream and more caramel. Because when is more caramel a bad thing? So if you are a cream cheese pie fan, try this instead. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.
