Mama, why is the sky blue? Why did you name me Kim? Where do babies come from? Why is this called a Mud Turtle Pie? Anyone? As a general rule, this pie is too sweet for me, and even for Rick. If I were to eat anything that’s too sweet, I would indulge in this pecan filling; I used the muscovado sugar and Lyle’s Syrup. Together, these two sweetnesses are ethereal. Though, the chocolate bungled up the beauty and turned it into a cloyingly sweet mud, as Rose so aptly puts it. I guess I’m not a fan of chocolate and caramel together. I’m definitely the exception rather than the rule. Lots of people love this combo.
