This Praline Turtle Pie has layers of caramel, pecans, and chocolate. So easy and decadent.
We pulled into the grocery store parking lot and my 20-month-old daughter said in a singing voice, “We’re ho-ome.”
See I try to go to the store only once a week. I have a list. A meticulous, planned out by meal list. Yet every single time I pull into my driveway I realize I forgot one item that I needed. It’s gotten
so bad that I scout out the cashiers to make sure it wasn’t one that I had recently. If I could I would forgo the stop at the bakery for the kid’s free cookie (they know me by name too), but quite frankly that’s the only thing that gives me five minutes of peace to shop before things start getting crazy.
So now my toddler thinks the grocery store is her home. Another reason my children will need therapy someday.
Let me just say that this Praline Turtle Pie was surprising delightful. Obviously you have to like nuts because it’s pretty much a nut pie. And depending on what’s going on in pecan farmland you may or may not have to sell your first born to get the 3 1/2 cups of pecans called for in this pie. Right now pecans aren’t that expensive…at least here in Florida they aren’t. This pie has pecans, caramel, and chocolate in pie crust. Simple but seriously good.Promise me you’ll eat it with a dallop of fresh whipped cream. It completely makes it a full bodied taste sensation.
