Turtle Pie, October 19, 2004 - 04:30 PM
Reviewer: Holly Renee from Charleston, SC USA
This pie was very easy to make. It took a good bit of time to melt the caramels in the sweetened condensed milk on low so I put it on med-low and that was much faster. Also, you should cook it at 350 for 35 minutes, not 325. The center didn\'t set at 325 but it did at 350. Otherwise, it\'s a very delicious pie. Nothing fancy to look at, but it was great!!
