Directions

  1. In a double boiler, whisk together the brown sugar, flour, and cornstarch. Add just enough milk to make a paste. Mix in beaten egg yolks, and then add the remainder of the milk.

  2. In medium mixing bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Beat in cream of tarter, white sugar, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Spread meringue over pie filling.

This was my first attempt at a cream pie, and I flopped. I only cooked the butterscotch mixture until it began to thicken, thinking that it would thicken even more as it baked in the oven. Wrong! We "drank" this pie! But, surprisingly, it still tasted great, and next time I'll know to cook it until very thick.

My family and I rate this recipe a 10! My grandmother used to make an awesome Butterscotch Pie & for years I've been looking for a recipe just like hers. This recipe is perfect and tastes just like Grandma's. The only suggestion I have is to omit the vanilla extract from the meringue. It makes it lose its stiffness and peaks.

Delicious! A beautiful butterscotch pudding makes for a rich, tasty pie. I didn't cook the custard quite long enough....make sure you cook it until it's really thick.
