Top-ranked recipe named "Turtle Pumpkin Pie"
A delicious and easy recipe for your Thanksgiving table that you can make ahead. This recipe was in the Family Circle magazine.
"Definately a 5-star recipe! My family loves it. Tastes great with a gingersnap cookie crust too. Turns out perfect every time! (I use whole milk with instant pudding mix, it needs the fat to set up, it might not work as well with soy or no/low-fat milk.) "
Pour 1/4 cup caramel topping into the pie crust and sprinkle with 1/2 cup pecans.
Beat milk, dry pudding mixes, pumpkin and spices with whisk until blended. Stir in 1 1/2 cups Cool Whip. Spread filling into crust. Top with remaining Cool Whip.
Refrigerate 1 hour. Top with remaining pecans and drizzle remaining caramel with fork. Store in refrigerator.

CbytheSea 8 months agoMade this for Thanksgiving instead of the traditional pumpkin pie. Out of all the pies we had this one was the hit of the day! Super easy to make and super easy to eat! Will become a part of our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner traditions.

Haileydickens 2 years agoSuper good! Its like a whipped cream version of pumpkin pie. Super good. Ohh and this was the recipe that I learned how to 'drizzle' caramel. Make sure to just dip the spoon in the caramel and drizzle like that. Dont get a spoon full of it

Amhensley 3 years agoI love this pie. I took it to work and it made the biggest riot! Be careful if cut in 8 pieces with 10 employees! P.S. Use a thick caramel sauce. Magic Shell is great idea. Thanks!
