    Caramel Pecan Silk Supreme Pie

    by cybermom_chick

    2 deep dish pie shells (homemade or frozen)

    1st layer: Carmel & pecans:
    14 oz. Caramels
    ½ cup unsalted butter
    ½ cup whipping cream
    2 cups pecans, chopped (small pieces, not finely chopped), and roasted

    Put caramels, butter and whipping cream in saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring frequently until caramels and butter melt (use a whisk for this). Remove from heat and stir until completely smooth. Stir in pecans. Pour into baked pie shell. Refrigerate, covered, for several hours until firm.

    2nd layer: French Silk
    2 cups powdered sugar (10X), sifted
    ½ lb. Unsalted butter, softened
    4 eggs
    4 (1-ounce) squares unsweeted chocolate, melted and cooled
    ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

    Beat sugar with butter in large bowl until smooth. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add melted chocolate; stir in vanilla extract. Mix well; spread on top of cool, firm caramel layer. Chill until ready to add cream cheese layer.

    3rd layer: Cream Cheese
    8 ounces Philadelphia Brand Cream Cheese, softened
    2 Tablespoons milk or half-and-half
    2 Tablespoons sugar
    3 cups thawed Cool Whip Whipped Topping (will use part of an 8 oz. container)

    Mix cream cheese, milk and sugar in large bowl with wire whisk until smooth. Gently stir in whipped topping. Carefully spread over chocolate mixture.

    Decorative Topping: Whipped cream
    2 cups whipping cream, whipped until stiff peaks form
    a few caramels, melted
    1 square of chocolate, melted

    Using pastry bag (or sandwich-type bag with corner snipped off), “Pipe” one continuous line of whipped cream around edge of cream cheese mixture, next to crust. Next, put dollops of whipped cream all over pie (circle shape , about 1 inc

    My question is on the French silk layer (2nd one). Should this be 1/2 cup butter or is it actually 1/2 lb? Please help!

    My French Silk Pie recipe calls for 1 cup butter, which is 1/2 lb., so I'm sure 1/2 lb. is correct.
    That recipe is on my to-try list for when I can afford to gain about 10# haha.

    Ok, I was thinking that 1/2 lb. was 1 cup, but I haven't had a chance to check, and thought I would ask you guys in case I was wrong. Wow! No kidding about gaining 10 lbs! I think I gained a few just thinking about making it. I'm making it next week for Thanksgiving!

    Thanks!

    Funny you should mention it. I just bought a lb of unsalted butter yesterday. There are four sticks in it, so there would be 2 sticks in 1/2 lb.

    This is my favorite pie recipe. I had forgotten that there was a post on it. I usually just buy a piece at Village Inn cause if I buy a pie, I end up eating most of it and do not need to gain another 10 pounds. It is so yummy, and yes, it is two sticks of butter in 1/2 lb.
