    That time of year when baking smells soooo goood.

    Chocolate Caramel Pecan Pie


    Melt together in microwave until smooth, cool slightly
    36 caramels
    ¼ cup butter
    ¼ c. water
    ¾ cup sugar
    1-cup chocolate chips
    ---------------------------------
    Add that to this stuff and mix until smooth.
    ½ tsp. Vanilla
    ¼ tsp. Salt
    3 eggs, beaten

    1 cup pecans + some to make the top pretty


    Pour over crust, arrange some nuts on top – this is a good-looking pie. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until pastry is brown. Filling will appear soft and puffed up, but will settle down as it cools. Wait until cool to cut.

    Crust
    1 egg yolk
    1 Tbl. White vinegar
    2 cups flour
    ¾ cup Crisco shortening
    1 Tbl. Sugar
    ½ teaspoon salt
    Water as needed (can be bourbon if you’re out)

    Combine egg yolks, vinegar and enough water to make 1/3 cup.
    Cut shortening into dry mixture. Dribble liquid in until you make a ball. Chill before rolling out.

    If time is short, I use frozen crust and it still turns out good. Hardest part is waiting for it to cool off.


    You can leave out chips and it's more traditional

    This is a definite one for me this week! My husband loves carmel, and pecan pie is his favorite. When we got married 4 years ago, I'd never made pecan pie in my life! So I'm anxious to please his pallate with a new variety that sounds heavenly! Thanx for sharing! Sara
