Grandma’s Butterscotch Pie

by 247tasty

Butterscotch Pie is your decadent holiday table dessert. This Butterscotch Pie Recipe is so rich and wonderful that everyone’s going to ask about it. It’s like the Butterscotch Pie from your grandmother’s time ago. This classic pastry is ideal for easy bakes, particularly for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. This is one of our best Thanksgiving pastries, so we make one almost always for our dessert table. My family always had butterscotch candies for every visit when she grew up. I knew where they could be found and I loved them. I haven’t tasted one in years as an adult, but I always know that this is one of my favourite tastes. The transformation into a classic candy seems to be the right thing to do and the result will be a deliciously creamy, rich, and delicious, Butterscotch Pie.

You can choose to add it with anything you want, sometimes I add pecans in my pie for added crunch and to balance the sweetness. Also, you can eat it without as it is. Butterscotch tastes like toffee. This is because toffee is butterscotch, but cooked for more time. It tastes like a lot of caramel, too. The principal difference between the butterscotch and caramel is that the bottle of butterscotch is brown, while the caramel is white.
