Turtle Pumpkin Pie

This is a great way to mix up the classic pumpkin pie... not that it needs changing or anything!!! I love the pecans that are added to this and the creamy-ness of the filling!

This pie is pretty easy to throw together... especially if you "cheat" :) and use the store bought graham cracker crust!!

Throw your graham crackers in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. The food processor make life so easy!!
Add melted butter and sugar and mix until combined.

Press into pie pan... be sure to go up the edges as well. Bake at 350° for about 6-8 minutes. Let Cool.

Add some caramel to the bottom of the crust and top with pecans. Looks so nummy already!!! Love the pecans!

Mix together vanilla pudding, pumpkin, milk cinnamon, nutmeg and cool whip. Blend together and spoon into pan on top of pecans and caramel. Refrigerate for one hour.

Top with remaining cool whip, caramel and pecans!!

Dig in ......

Ours was a little soft but you can so all the layers of good-ness here!! Def a great one to try!!
