Simple Ingredients

There are no fancy ingredients in this caramel pie. However, it is what you do with those simple ingredients that takes this pie over the top.

Homemade caramel is just so tasty. 

Pie Crust

Often, I see recipes for a caramel pie using a graham cracker crust. I do like a graham cracker crust, but with this pie, I really like the crust to be more of a tart crust. By the way, this crust will work well with a tart pan. Your results are sure to be wonderful no matter if you make this into a pie or tart.

This pie can really be made into a tart as well. The crust is tasty and flaky and the filling is a caramel custard.

Pie Crust

  • 9 Oz. all-purpose flour
  • 4.5 Oz. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp. salt
  • 8 Oz. Butter (unsalted)
  • 2 Egg Yolks


  • 18 Oz. granulated sugar
  • 12 Oz. water
  • 16 Oz. Heavy Cream

Ingredients to combine with the caramel

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Egg Yolks
  • 2 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • Pinch salt


Pie Crust

  • Mix flour and sugar together well. Cut in butter until crumbly and looks like breadcrumbs. Add egg yolks and mix until forms a dough ball, Do not over mix. Pat into 2 9-inch pie plates or tart pans making sure the press in well. Bake at 400°F about 17-22 minutes or until a rich golden brown. Set aside to cool.

Caramel Filling

  • In a pan, combine sugar and water and bring to boil on stove using medium heat. Cook until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture turns into a golden caramel color. Remove from heat and carefully add: the heavy cream. What I do is use a whisk and drizzle in the heavy cream. Stir until smooth, you may have to use a bit of heat again. Let cool slightly and add: the eggs, egg yolks, vanilla extract and salt.
  • Pour into the pre-baked pie crust or tart shells and place in 325°F oven and bake until starting to set but still jiggly in the center. About 30-45 minutes.
