Caramel Drizzle Freezer Pie

caramel drizzle freezer pie

I’m so excited to share this week’s recipe with you!  I saw this Caramel Drizzle Freezer Pie on Pinterest a few weeks ago, and I could hardly wait to make it!  The recipe comes from All Recipes, a great source for any cook or baker, and I just know you’re going to love it!

This is the perfect pie for summer time because it’s very sweet and it’s also served cold.  But I, for one, think it is the perfect pie for any time of year.  I’m actually looking quite forward to making it for the Thanksgiving and Christmas season.  And as if the taste of this pie wasn’t a good enough reason to make it, it’s also super easy to make, and the recipe yields 2 pies, so it’s perfect for parties and pot lucks.

Caramel Drizzle Freezer Pie

Caramel Drizzle Freezer Pie

Ingredients:

2 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crusts

6 tablespoons butter

1 (7 ounce) package shredded coconut

1 cup chopped pecans

1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

1 (16 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

1 (12 ounce) jar caramel ice cream topping

Directions:

Place butter in a medium skillet and melt over medium heat. Add coconut and pecans, stirring to coat. Saute until coconut and pecans are lightly toasted, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, whip together condensed milk and cream cheese until fluffy. Fold in whipped topping. Spoon 1/4 of cream cheese mixture into each graham cracker crust. Drizzle each with 1/4 of caramel topping. Repeat layers with remaining cream cheese mixture and caramel. Top each pie with coconut and pecan mixture. Freeze overnight.

Serve straight out of the freezer. No need to thaw.

Notes

Before and after serving, you MUST store in freezer. If you store the pie in the refrigerator, it will not keep its shape and it will be runny upon slicing.

Most people I served this to said the coconut "made" this pie (good). But if you have someone in the family whose not a fan of coconut, I suggest making a kid friendly version topped with crushed graham crackers, caramel, and mini Rolos. (I plan to do this next time around!)
