1/4

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

  • 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.
