Butterscotch Pie

It’s time to mix it up this Thanksgiving and try this Butterscotch Pie. Believe me, you will not regret it! This creamy butterscotch filling is spread into a flaky pie crust and drizzled with butterscotch topping then sprinkled with butterscotch chips. It’s basically a butterscotch-lovers dream. There’s just something about having a pie that is more unique that makes it even better. Plus, once people get a taste of it, it’ll become one of their favorites too.

Finally! Attention Butterscotch Deserves

I have been a big fan of butterscotch ever since I was young. It is still my favorite pudding flavor. Sure, many people grab the chocolate pudding first, but for me it was always butterscotch. I thought that I had died and gone to heaven when I tried Harry Potter Butterbeer for the first time at Universal Studios in Orlando a few months ago. Oh, how I want to go back and get another one. But for now, this pie will do just fine!

More Butterscotch Recipes To Try

Butterscotch lovers, unite! There are several other delectable ways to enjoy this sweet treat. Like these Oatmeal Cookies with Butterscotch Chips. Hands down, one of my personal favs! You’ll also love the Coconut Butterscotch Chocolate Chip Cookies. Its like every good thing inside one bite. And of course Oh Henry Bars (or Scotcharoos) wouldn’t taste the same without the butterscotch in the topping.

Pies for Everyone

  1. I could not get this pie to get thick I am wondering should that be 2 cups milk instead of 4 That seems like a lot to me Thank you

    1. The 4 cups of milk is correct. The trick is cooking the mixture over the stove long enough to really thicken it. It should be almost as thick as you want it for the final product when it goes into the pie crust.
