    If you’re in the mood for something luxuriously sweet, try my Caramel Turtle Pie! I have a feeling turtle pie might not be familiar to everyone. Turtles are a little turtle-shaped chocolate candy with a pecan and caramel filling. I’m not clear on the history, but at some point a very smart cook thought that chocolate, caramel, and pecan would also work great as a pie, and so the Turtle Pie was born!

    A Turtle Pie usually has the classic caramel, chocolate and pecans drizzled and scattered over the top of a cheesecake filling, but I went a bit further and turned those three key ingredients into different layers within the pie – have a go and see for yourself how delicious it turns out!

    For the pie crust I use this Pie Crust Mix recipe.
