Butterscotch Pie

Updated: Jul 28, 2023

A popular pie in the Mennonite circle I grew up in. My grandmother always has and still brings this pie to every pot luck. Back when my mom grew up and they lived extremely frugally Grandma made this pie using only water instead of milk. Just a tip in case inflation has you over your head...

You will need:


2 pie crusts, baked 1 1/2 cup whipping cream, whipped


Butterscotch Pie Filling

Syrup 6 tbsp. water 1 cup brown sugar 2 tbsp. butter 1 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp. soda

In a large sauce pan, cook the syrup for 5-7 minutes, until it looks like syrup. Then add the rest, starting with the milk and water first before adding in the cornstarch mixture.


2 cups milk

1 cup water

2 egg yolks 3/4 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup cornstarch

1/4 cup water


In a small mixing bowl combine yolks, sugar and cornstarch with a 1/4 cup water. Once well combined add to the syrup in the saucepan. Bring to a simmer, while constantly stirring to prevent burning. Remove from heat. Add butterscotch flavoring when pudding is done. Pour into baked pie crusts. Chill and top with whipped cream. Makes 2 pies.


1 1/2 tsp. butterscotch flavoring *

Note:

I buy my flavoring from amazon. Some brands that make flavorings and vanilla, like Benjamins, have butterscotch flavoring.
