There is one that was posted today on home page. It looks really good. I love apple pies and apple fillings.

I don't know but I saved this for future reference, because I want to experiment with a new cake/filling combo that includes apple....

I haven't tried it but the filling looks pretty basic and easy....I think it might be yummy to add some caramel to the filling as well...I like that Mrs. Richardson's caramel ice cream topping (its real caramel, not just a bunch of corn syrup) but its hard to find....

This sounds good for a carrot cake. You could even use walnuts instead of pecans. What about the coconut frosting you find on top of a German Chocolate cake. I love that stuff. Yum!
Pecan Pie -

1/2 cup butter or margarine, room temperature
1 cup brown sugar, packed
dash of salt
1/2 cup evaporated milk
2 cups confectioners (powdered) sugar, sifted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

*Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Add brown sugar and salt. Bring to a boil and let boil 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in milk. Bring mixture to a boil and let boil 2 minutes or until 232°F (111°C). Remove praline mixture from heat. Cool to lukewarm. Stir in powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat with a wooden spoon until mixture is smooth.
**I add chopped pecans to this for a cake filling.
