Ingredients

1
package unflavored gelatin
1/4
cup cold water
1
bag (14 oz) caramels, unwrapped
1
cup milk
1
box Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
1 1/2
cups whipping cream
1/4
cup slivered almonds
2

Steps

  • 1 In small bowl, sprinkle gelatin over water; let stand to soften. In 2-quart saucepan, cook caramels and milk over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until caramels are melted and mixture is smooth. Stir in softened gelatin. Refrigerate until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally, 45 to 60 minutes.

  • 3 In large bowl, beat whipping cream with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold thickened caramel mixture into whipped cream. Pour into cooled baked shell. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight before serving.
  • 4 Meanwhile, line cookie sheet with foil. In 7-inch skillet, cook almonds and sugar over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is melted and almonds are golden brown. Immediately spread on cookie sheet. Cool completely, then break apart.
