Why I Love This Recipe


Ingredients You'll Need

1 9 inch unbaked deep-dish pie crust
1 packet unflavored gelatin (1 packet = 1 tablespoon -- see note at bottom)
1/4 cup warm water
1 (14 oz) package of caramels (such as Kraft), unwrapped
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups heavy cream, whipped to make about 3 cups
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/3 cup slivered almonds
Optional: caramel syrup and whipped cream for garnishing


Directions

Bake pie crust as directed on package or prepare your own pie crust, blind bake it and allow it to cool completely.


Place 1/4 cup of water in a small bowl. Sprinkle 1 packet of gelatin over water and let it sit for 5 minutes to soften.


Meanwhile, in a heavy saucepan, combine caramel and milk. Heat over medium-low, stirring often, until caramels melt and mixture is smooth. Stir in gelatin. Transfer to a bowl and chill for 60 minutes or until it is slightly thickened (it will not be super thick….just slightly thicker than before).


Fold the caramel mixture into the bowl of whipped cream. Pour into pie shell – it will go up to the very top. Chill for 4 hours or until set.


Before serving, prepare the candied almonds. In a large skillet, stir together the sugar and almonds. Cook the almonds, stirring constantly, over medium heat. The sugar will start to melt and caramelize….be patient, because it takes at least 5 minutes. Continue stirring and watching almonds. When the almonds become golden brown, spoon them out onto a sheet of foil to cool and crisp. When ready to serve, break the almonds apart and sprinkle on pie.
