Easy Caramel Pie for Ray's Birthday

Raising Regan has not and will not be stress-free. What five year old girl refuses a princess birthday cake from Publix? Why does she insist on a "new" pie? Of course, I try several recipes and the official taste-tester, Ray, doesn't like any. So as a last resort, I threw what little ingredients I had and just when I thought I was due for dose of valium, she likes this pie.

2 graham cracker crusts
1 large tub of Cool Whip, thawed
1 jar of caramel ice cream topping
1 package cream cheese, softened
1 large jar of sweetened condensed milk
A bag of pecans (optional)
1 stubborn five year old blonde czarina

Cream softened cream cheese until smooth and butter-like. Mike Cool Whip, caramel, sweetened condensed milk until smooth Add pecans (if you want them). Pour into the two graham cracker crusts. Allow the blonde czarina to lick the bowl or you'll be beheaded. Chill for a couple of hours.
