This is a CopyKat.com recipe of O'Charley's Caramel Pie. It tastes exactly like it! Delicious and VERY rich! (cook time includes cool down time). Edited 9/22/06 to change cooking method (cooking milk instead of boiling cans.)

I understand the safety issues of boiling the cans. The pressure (water) outside the cans should be maintained. The major risk is letting the water evaporate below the level of the cans. I solved this problem by cooking my cans in my slow cooker. I just placed the cans in the cooker, filled with water, placed the lid on and cooked on low for 6-7 hrs. They turned out perfect. Be sure to let the cans cool completely before opening. I unplugged my slow cooker, let the water cool, set cans out at room temp for an hr. then refridgerated them. Try the caramel in this recipe I created if you love caramel " Caramel White Chocolate Whipped Cream Frosting" #103492
