“If you're into the flavor of caramel and chocolate (as in caramel lattes), you'll love this decadent dessert. I found this in Family Circle Hometown Favorites Cookbook Volume 2. I have not tried this recipe, but I'm posting it for safe keeping.”
1 pie

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 9 inches refrigerated ready to use rolled pie crusts (1 half a 15oz package)
  • 13 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 18 ounces butterscotch sundae sauce (dessert sauce) or 18 ounces caramel sauce (dessert sauce)
  • 6 tablespoons instant cappuccino coffee (coffee mix)
  • 12 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups pecan halves
  • sweetened whipped cream (optional)
  • Sweetened Whipped Cream

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 12 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Heat oven to 350. Let refrigerated piecrust stand at room temperature following package directions.
  2. Unroll piecrust into 9-inch pie plate. Turn edge under to form stand-up edge; crimp the edge as desired. Crumble brown sugar in even layer over crust.
