- 1 sheet refrigerated pie crust
- 36 caramels
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream, divided
- 3-1/2 cups pecan halves

Can this be made in advance? And, should it be refrigerated?

To Roseannf: the other 1/2 cup cream is used for whipping and placing a dollop on top of the finished pie. It states this in the last paragraph of the recipe.

This sounds soooooo yummy, my only problem is, where is the other 1/2 cup of cream used? It says 1 cup of cream divided, but only 1/2 cup is used to melt the caramels

Kathy here! Just a heads up that I DID NOT put the foil in my recipe. I guess the editors thought it was required, but I did not! So sorry about that !!!

Thank goodness for the foil warning! I hope you don't use a microwave, any electronic devices, a cell phone, flourescent lights, or breathe the air.Tart was wonderful.

I baked the crust on baking sheet. Cut it in pieces and put it in miniature dessert dishes. Poured the mixture on top. Topped with whipped cream. Everyone did think it was a fancy dish.

Wonderful, but would never serve 16 in my household!!! Wonderful taste and easy to make.... can't believe the number of people who don't know that aluminum foil is not a health threat. Look it up people!!!!
