Turtle Pumpkin Pie

Just the other day I was thinking I have too many dessert recipes on that really possible?? Well, aparently not. Here's one more! :)


1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp. caramel ice cream topping, divided
1 Graham Pie Crust
1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp. Pecan Pieces, divided
1 cup cold milk
2 pkg. (3.4 oz. each) Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 tub (8 oz.) Whipped Topping, thawed, divided

POUR 1/4 cup caramel topping into crust; sprinkle with 1/2 cup pecans.
BEAT milk, pudding mixes, pumpkin and spices with whisk until blended. Stir in 1-1/2 cups COOL WHIP. Spread into crust.

REFRIGERATE at least 1 hour. Top with remaining COOL WHIP, caramel topping and pecans just before serving.

*** OH MY GOSH! THIS IS AMAZING! I just got my Kraft foods magazine this week and saw this recipe. I was anxious to try it because we were having company and I needed a dessert. This was SO quick--but it ended up the PERFECT combo. I actually don't care for straight pumpkin pie...But this recipe won me over! We will make this again and again!
