Erin's Caramel Pecan Pie

A delicious recipe resurrected from Erin Napier's Make Something Good Today blog in 2012. Enjoy!

"As if you couldn’t tell from my past blogs, I do so love making pies. It is without a doubt the most classic American dessert and there’s just something about making one that is so much more fun than, say, a cake or a cobbler." — Erin Napier
