Turtle Pumpkin Pie


I saw this recipe in a magazine and just had to try it. I altered the recipe a little to cut down on the sugar content. Check out the original at Kraft Recipes.
Turtle Pumpkin Pie
.
1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp sugar free caramel ice cream topping, divided
1 graham cracker pie crust
1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp chopped pecans, divided
2 pkg. sugar free vanilla flavor instant pudding
1 cup 2% cold milk
1 can plain pumpkin (15 oz) (not pie mix)
1 & 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tub Extra Creamy Cool Whip (8 oz)
.
Pour 1/4 cup caramel topping into crust and sprinkle with 1/2 cup nuts. Whisk pudding mixes, milk pumpkin and spices until blended. Stir in 1 and 1/2 cups cool whip. Spoon into crust. Refrigerate. Top with remaining cool whip, nuts and caramel before serving.

Here's a picture before the additional topping was added.

I didn't really measure the caramel sauce. I just layered it on the bottom of the pie and drizzled some more on the top. This would also be great as a frozen treat. Enjoy!
