    Mirj's Note:

    This is one of those desserts that is likely to kill you, and is well worth it! Totally comfort food, something your mother would only let you have one small piece of, but as an adult you can inhale the entire pie!

      I didn't even know what a caramel pie was until one of my roomates told me. We searched high and low to find one that was the same she had before. And we found it! This pie is so good. I'll definitely be making this over and over again!

      This was good, the consistancy of the pie was perfect and the meringue was wonderful. I think I overcooked the caramel (ie burnt it a bit) so it had a burnt taste.... I am going to try this again and remove the caramel sooner... Also I used a regular frying pan and it seemed to work fine... I just wasn't paying attention.....
