How to make caramel pie step by step:
Step 1: Bring out a crockpot to prepare the caramel pie.
Step 2: Removing the labels from the sweetened condensed milk, place them into the crockpot. You just need to remove the labels, not the cans. You need to put them unopened into the crockpot.
Step 2: Now, you need to fill the crockpot up with cold water. Pour the water as they can barely cover the condensed milk cans. Don’t pour too much or too little water into the crockpot, in case you can’t get the perfect result.
Step 3: Turn on the crock pot low and cover it for setting the time frame of 7 hours.
Step 4: After 7 hours, turning off the crockpot, expel the cans from the crockpot. Let the condensed milk cans cool at least for 3 hours. These time frames are very important to set the ingredients.
Step 5: When the cans are cool enough, uncover the cans and pour the 2 cans of condensed milk into the cracker pie crust. Preparing the pie crust is super easy. Anyways, spread the caramel smoothly with a wide wooden spoon.
Step 6: Condense milk can be lukewarm. So, don’t place the cool whip before it is completely cold. Top the cool whip on cooled condensed milk spread.
Step 7: Garnish your caramel pie with chopped pecans and mini chocolate chips. With the garnish. your pies not only look great but also taste amazing.
To prepare caramel pie, the graham cracker pie crust, you just need three ingredients. When the condensed milk is preparing a crockpot, you need to prepare the pie crust. I always use the Keebler brand crumbs for making the pie crust. This doesn’t take more than 15 minutes to prepare but to let the crust cool down, it’s better to make it earlier. So, let’s see the process of preparing the o’charley’s pies crust.
- Graham cracker crumbs about 1 cup
- 2 tbsp. of sugar
- Melted butter about 1/2 cup
- In a pan, melt the butter slice. Let the melted butter cool and transfer it in a bowl.
- Mix the graham cracker crumbs (Keebler Brand), 2 tbsp. of sugar in another bowl.
- Pour the melted butter into the crumbs mix slowly, whisking them well. Keep whisking until the butter entirely mix up into the mixture.
- Taking a 9*9″ size pie pan, pack the crumb mixture evenly in the pan. With fingers, press the bottom level and sides of the crumbs and continue that firmly up to the rim.
- Place the pie pan into the refrigerator to chill before you use it for filling. Well, personally, I don’t like this process. I bake the crumb crust into the
ovento 350 degrees F for 8 minutes.
- Remove the pie pan from the
oven, let it cool before you fill it.
Your main ingredient for caramel pie is ready. The pie mostly depends on the crumb crust. So, the crust is needed to be perfect.
