Gooey Pie

Posted by Lori:

This is one of the other pies my husband made for the county fair pie contest last weekend. To me, it's enough to say this pie has chocolate and caramel listed in the ingredients...two of my favorite combinations! I don't remember where he got the recipe, but I want to give the owner "credit". Her name is Susan Kienholz and she won "Grand Prize" in whatever contest she entered. Thanks, Susan, for this recipe!


1 unbaked 9 inch pie shell (my mom's pie crust found here is my favorite!)
1/2 cup chopped pecans
20 caramels, unwrapped
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 egg, beaten
2 T. butter or margarine
6 oz. semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place pecans in bottom of pie shell. In medium sauce pan, cook 2/3 of the sweetened condensed milk and the caramels over medium-low heat, stirring constantly until melted and smooth. Spoon mixture over pecans. Beat the remaining condensed milk, butter and beaten egg with an electric mixer on medium for one minute. Stir in chocolate chips and pour over caramel mixture in pie pan. Bake 35 minutes or until center is set and knife inserted in center comes out clean (I didn't make this husband did...but I don't know that it will come out "clean" with hot caramel and chocolate.  I would think just cook it until it's set.)

"Gooey" best describes this pie, for sure! Gooey and Good!
