please disregard....

the recipe I posted last.
is the recipe to end all recipes.
one stuck mercilessly to the pan, and while it tasted good, was more trouble than this, which is infinitely better.
you come to our home for supper, you can count that this will be the dessert. It is that good.

1 graham cracker crust
3 cans sweetened condensed milk

Fill crock pot 3/4 high with water. Set on high. After an hour or two it should be simmering, if not outright boiling.
Peel labels off cans of sc milk. Place cans in crock pot - do not open, do not poke holes in them, just put them in whole. Without labels.
Ensure that water is covering cans, if not, add more so they are covered.
Place lid on crock pot.
Once the water begins to boil again, start your kitchen timer.
Boil for 3 hours.
Yes, you are reading this right. You have 3 unopened cans of sweetened condensed milk in your crock pot, boiling away for 3 hours.
Take 'em out after 3 hours and let them cool to the touch - or put them in the fridge for later.
When you are ready to make the pie, use a can opener to open cans. The contents will be a pleasing caramel color. Stir (whip) with a fork until they are smooth. Pour into graham cracker crust. Hint: cut off other end of can so the contents will slide out easier. Do the same with all 3 cans Hint: I only needed 2 1/2 cans for my crust. Your mileage may vary.
Chill pie for at least 1 hour, preferable a couple.
Slice thin....this is VERY rich and is delicious with a cup of black coffee on the side.

Takes awhile, but how easy is that? Let me know if you made it and what you thought!
