Ingredients

  • 1 9- inch pie crust
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Whipped Cream for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place pie crust into pie plate and bake for 8 minutes. Remove pie crust from oven and set aside.
  • To prepare the caramel pie filling, add brown sugar, flour, salt, milk, half and half, and egg yolks to a heavy bottomed, 3-4 quart saucepan over medium heat. Whisk together to combine continue to whisk until thick and creamy. Remove from the heat, add vanilla extract.
  • Add granulated sugar and butter to a small skillet over medium heat. Stir constantly until the sugar has melted and caramelized. Slowly pour, whisking as you do, into the warm cream mixture until well combined.
  • Pour into prepared pie crust and allow to cool for about 10 minutes. Place a piece of plastic wrap onto the caramel portion of the pie and place into the refrigerator for 1-3 hours to overnight to allow the pie to firm.
  • When ready to serve, remove the pie from the refrigerator and carefully remove the plastic wrap from the top of the caramel.
  • As the pie is resting, pour whipping cream and granulated sugar into a medium glass bowl. Whip until stiff peaks have formed in the whipping cream. Use to top the caramel pie.
  • Store pie in the refrigerator to keep the caramel firm.
