Sam, you were great. I'm here with our friend, elizabeth karmel. We're surrounded by pies this thanksgiving. Great to have you here. And we'll start with the classic. Thanksgiving is all about pie. Most people have pecan pie, pumpkin pie. That's why I brought it today. But I have a crazy fun, new pie. We're getting ready to make those. This is the cowboy pie I made for hill country chicken. This is going to be a make-your-own cowboy pie. Explain quickly what cowboy pie is. This is like a candy bar in a cup. Not only tastes great. But it's a great activity. While the turkey is cooking, this is something you can -- harper, are you watching? You're going to love making this pie. I have a simple ratio. All y'all are going to do it. You're going to be here. I'm going to be here. Basically, two cups of your favorite morsel. Okay. And one cup of an alternate morsel. Some nuts. Some dried fruit, cherries. And you want to mix enough -- this stuff? You can start with whatever you want. Can I do it with this? You can do it with whatever you want. I'm watching. Make sure you make your favorite flavor combinations. But one that I would like. And the candy bars, small pieces? Big pieces? It's a good idea to make them a little bit small. Actually, I've got all kinds of goodies here from godiva to rice krispies. If you do this with your family, make sure you have family favorites. But also, some healthy items, as well. You're going to need a lot more. Need a lot more. You can use chocolate chips. I love the caramel. I like the caramel. Put rice krispies or granola, something that will bind everything. Use all of it. That's what makes it so much fun. It's very free-form. And you can see, there's no eggs. And just enough sweetened condensed milk, to hold it together. What do we have here? What are you putting in yours? I put toffee, reese's, bittersweet chocolate and rice krispies. I'm going to use a chocolate pie crust. Look how easy that is. Mine is almost done. Mine is almost done. What is this? Okay. This is sweet condensed milk. Basically, what that will do -- it's like heaven. And what do you do? I'm going to put it in a 350-degree oven for about 20 minutes, until everything melts together. And then, if you make small ones, everybody can have their own, individual pie for dessert. We might do it. I know. And it's like a candy bar in a cup. You can get the recipe on goodmorningamerica.Com on yahoo!
