  1. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, cornstarch and salt. Add enough milk to make thick paste. In a saucepan over medium heat, bring milk to a boil. Stir in brown sugar mixture, return to a boil, and cook for 1 minute.
  2. Place egg yolks in small bowl. Temper the yolks by quickly stirring in about 1/4 of hot milk mixture. Pour yolk mixture back into hot milk mixture, and return to heat. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute; remove from heat. Stir in butter and vanilla until butter is melted. Pour into bowls, and let cool slightly.

Awesome- so super creamy! I added an extra tablespoon of cornstarch because the other reviews had me worried about the pudding setting up. I'm not sure if I really needed it but it turned out ...

I was really looking forward to tasting the result of this recipe, because I live in a foreign country and butterscotch flavored anything cannot be found here. Unfortunately, I found the flavor ...

Awsome. I have been looking for a good butterscotch pudding for a long time! The only change I made was to add a bit of butterscotch schnapps - I like it Really butterscotchy!

yum yum! Don't stir again after you finish stirring the butter in, or it will get grainy. I also added about a tablespoon of scotch whiskey for flavor- it is butterSCOTCH, after all.

This beats packaged butterscotch pudding! Really liked it and can't wait to fix it for my daughter and family when they come to Wyoming to visit. Butterscotch is her very favorite.

Excellent recipe. Use real butter and even better with slightly less sugar and only two egg yolks.

Much better than packaged pudding. Its worth it if you have the time and want to try it from scratch. Don't expect the overly strong, pre-processed taste. This butterscotch flavor is more subtle...

YUM! I wish I had used dark brown sugar but it still was a wonderful treat! Thanks for sharing.

I made pie for dessert with this recipe. Everyone really loved it. Will make again and again.
