How to make it

  • Caramelize 3/4 c. sugar, stirring until it's melted and a nice caramel color. Set aside.
  • Combine remaining 3/4 c. sugar, flour, egg yolks, and whisk in milk gradually until mixture is smooth.
  • Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens.
  • Add the caramelized sugar, and stir like crazy!
  • It will lump up, but it WILL melt and the mixture will be smooth again.
  • Continue to cook and stir until smooth and very thick.
  • Add vanilla, and a pat of butter, if you'd like.
  • Pour into a baked 9 inch pie crust.
  • Make meringue out of the egg whites, adding sugar to taste, and spread on top of pie. Bake until light brown.
  • OR just forgo the meringue, and use whipped cream or whipped topping.

    My grandmother used to make this on every holiday. It is my all time favorite pie. I only wish someone would come up with an easier way to caramelize the sugar.

    Thank you for the recipe. I had the good fortune to visit Charlotte's Eats and Sweets in Keo, AR. This is the same as the Caramel Pie I had there. It is delicious. I am so glad that you shared it!

    I like the caramelized sugar addition to your pie recipe - sounds fabulous! With apples in full season, this will be a must try - thank you!
