3 Turtle Pumpkin Pie

Christmas at our house was wonderful! :-) 
From the candle light service at church to having our family all together (including the (almost) newest member, Rebecca and my 90 year old Gigi), I would say the theme of my Christmas was thankfulness. HE has truly blessed us this year!  
Our menu included:
Sugared Pecans
Assortment of cheese and crackers
Candied Walnut Salad with spinach, romaine, craisins, apples, and blue cheese
Potato Gratin with Rosemary Crust
Grandpa's dressing
Cranberry Sauce
Houston's Junior League Green Bean Casserole
Turtle Pumpkin Pie,
Banana Pudding Pie

Today, I am going to share the Turtle Pumpkin Pie with you!
Turtle Pumpkin Pie
1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp. caramel ice cream topping, divided
1   HONEY MAID Graham Pie Crust (6 oz.)
1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp. chopped PLANTERS Pecans, divided
2 pkg.  (3.4 oz. each) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
1 cup cold milk
