But what would truly sell you this recipe is how easy it is to make. Just mix all the ingredients in one bowl, spread it evenly over the pre-made Graham crust, and then refrigerate. So simple and easy, right? The kids would surely love this dessert – even the adults, as the flavors are not overwhelming. What are you waiting for? Try this today and see for yourself.

Step 2

Next, grab the Graham pie crust and spread 1/4 cup of caramel topping at the bottom. After this, sprinkle 1/2 cup of chopped pecans, then add the pumpkin mixture right on top of the pecans. Spread evenly until smooth. Now, place it in the fridge and let it cool for one hour. Once done cooling, add the rest of the whipped topping on top, then sprinkle some more chopped pecans. Lastly, drizzle 2 tbsp caramel topping over the pie.  Serve and enjoy!
