This recipe is a totally delicious twist on a Thanksgiving dessert classic and, thanks to the caramel drizzle, it’s one you won’t want to miss.

What You’ll Need

  • 1 rolled refrigerated pie crust (from a 14.1-ounce package)

  • 1 (8-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1/4 cup caramel sauce
  • 1/4 cup salted peanuts, coarsely chopped

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Unroll pie crust and place in a 9-inch pie plate, pressing crust firmly into plate; flute edges and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin, eggs, sugar, salt, flour, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and evaporated milk; pour mixture into pie crust.
  3. Bake 20 minutes then reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake an additional 40 minutes, or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.
  4. Let cool at room temperature, then refrigerate until well chilled. Top with whipped topping, drizzle with caramel sauce, and sprinkle with chopped peanuts. Enjoy!
