How to make it
- Fold out pie crust and lay it on a large baking sheet; patting it down just a bit but keeping the round pie crust shape.
- Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
- Remove from oven; cool 15 minutes.
- Spread a very thin layer of a thick caramel ice cream sauce over the crust.
- Top caramel sauce with a layer of chocolate chips (or any other optional topping ideas you want to add that need to melt a bit); place pan back into a hot oven to let chips melt for a few minutes (remember, the chips won’t actually spread out when they melt, so check to see when they are soft enough to spread) – remove pan from oven and gently spread/swirl chips over caramel layer.
- Cool and cut into pie-shaped wedges.
- NOTE: for a fun sundae idea, use the baked wedges as a "base" for a scoop of ice cream - your toppings will be on the bottom of the dish on the wedge and not quit so runny and messy for the kids!
- FRUIT WEDGES VARIATION: Skip the syrup and chips, instead spreading the cooled crust with a thin layer of cream cheese sweeetened with some powdered sugar, then topping it with whatever diced fruit you would like - you just need a thin "base" of something for the fruit to adhere to when you sprinkle it over the crust (much like a fruit pizza without much work for the base). Again, use whatever toppings you like with the fruit - a sprinkle of powdered sugar, a drizzle of melted white or milk chocolate, a bit of glaze (especially nice with strawberries, or just "au natural"!
