“This rich caramel custard pie is a classic favorite. The secret is to make the caramel in a cast iron skillet! Serve it with lightly sweetened whipped cream if you like.”

This recipe is very similar to the one my great-grandmother used to make. She added a few pats of butter and a few drops of vanilla extract at the end. Oh, and she put the left over sugar in a cast iron skillet and cooked it in the over for about 35-40 mins at 375. That gave her time to cook the custard. I prefer it topped with a meringue.



Made this today and when I poured the caramelized sugar syrup, it all broke up into little bits of hard sugar all through the pie. I tried to pick it out the best I could, but some still remained. I'm not sure what I did wrong, but I'm not planning on making this again



I used this recipe once before, I'm so glad it's here. My brother in law requested a caramel pie like grandma used to make and this was the only recipe i could find. He loved it!! Thanks for sharing it. I'm making it again.
