Caramel Pie Recipe – Caramel Pie
* 1 cup brown sugar
* 3 eggs, separated
* 5 tablespoons flour
* 1 1/2 cups milk
* 2 tablespoons butter
* 1 teaspoon vanilla
* 1 pie shell, 9-inch, baked
* 1/3 cup sugar, for meringue
* 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
Beat egg yolks; add milk. Mix flour with sugar. Add butter and vanilla. Combine all ingredients and cook in double boiler until thick, stirring constantly. Pour filling into baked pie shell, top with meringue, and bake at brown.
Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until frothy. Slowly add 1/3 cup sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Spread meringue over the hot filling, spreading to crust. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes, or until browned.
Sounds good to me. Would it be going too far to drizzle chocolate over it?

I didn’t have a lot of luck last time I tried those caramels in a cheesecake.
Have you seen that new cream cheese which comes already flavoured with chocolate and caramel? I tried it but it’s super-icky sweet. Too sweet for a cheesecake really. I like to add vanilla yogurt to my cheesecake, then just the cream cheese, some sugar, an egg or two. The rest depends on what flavour I’m going for. I made a nice ginger cheesecake over the summer for a party my Mom went to.
CopyKat Recipes – Lots more goodies were found here. But, now I’m going to bed. Even the lure of looking at more chocolate is fading fast. 🙂
