"This rich caramel custard pie is a classic favorite. The secret is to make the caramel in a cast iron skillet! Serve it with lightly sweetened whipped cream if you like."

This recipe is very similar to the one my great-grandmother used to make. She added a few pats of butter and a few drops of vanilla extract at the end. Oh, and she put the left over sugar in a cast iron skillet and cooked it in the over for about 35-40 mins at 375. That gave her time to cook the custard. I prefer it topped with a meringue.
Made this today and when I poured the caramelized sugar syrup, it all broke up into little bits of hard sugar all through the pie. I tried to pick it out the best I could, but some still remained. I'm not sure what I did wrong, but I'm not planning on making this again
I used this recipe once before, I'm so glad it's here. My brother in law requested a caramel pie like grandma used to make and this was the only recipe i could find. He loved it!! Thanks for sharing it. I'm making it again.
This is a wonderful pie! I made it for my family, and even my brother-in-law (who has never liked caramel pie) loved it!! I will be making this pie again.
Not that hard to make and really good. I had always wante dot make a caramel pie and this was my first. I will make it again.
I grew up on a pie made from a very similar recipe.Maybe a little less sugar. And Mom always made a meringue topping. Delicious.
I thought this was pie was way too sweet, but my husband liked it, so maybe it's just a matter of taste.
Saundra, I've been looking for this exact recipe for several years since I lost the one of a good friend of mine. Thanks for sharing it. Leeflea
