We had friends over recently for dinner, so I was looking for something impressive and/or really delicious to serve for dessert. I wanted it to be something you just don’t see and/or eat very often. That’s when this delicious pie came to mind. I’ve made it before a few times, and it’s a favorite of mine – it just makes the whole dessert out of this world delicious. In fact, I confess that as I was making this pie, I just might have eaten a few spoonfuls of the caramel sauce along the way. It is soooo good!!
This dessert was the perfect choice for our friends – they loved it! Someone even asked if there was rum in it. You just gotta try this. I promise you will love it
