The caramel mixture must be very cold before the whipped cream is folded in. Otherwise, the whipped cream will collapse.

This one of my favorite pies to eat! The filling and caramel shipped cream are easy to make and are very delicious. The pie crust is easy to make too. Rolling it out is another story! It is the most difficult pie dough that I have ever worked with. One of these days I will make it with a cookie crust to save myself the frustration.
can arrowroot be used in lieu of cornstarch?
Cornstarch provides a smoother pudding whereas flour leaves a less smooth finish. It doesn't matter when making a quick gravy but for a pudding, where the flavor and texture are top-billing, it does, and corn starch is pretty cheap - you can even get a small amount in the bulk area of whole foods.
I think you could use sifted flour. I have tried it in similar recipes, although not this exact one.
