A nice butterscotch pie recipe to try !
- 1 cup brown sugar (not packed)
- 2 tbsp. flour
- 2 tbsp. butter
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 cup cold water
- 2 egg yolks (slightly beaten)
- prebaked pie crust
This recipe is from a region of Germany that borders Holland. This same recipe may be used (without the pie crust) to make butterscotch pudding!
Combine sugar and flour in the top of a double boiler. Add remaining ingredients in order given, adding the water and eggs last. Mix the egg yolks with 2 teaspoons of water before adding. Cook until mixture has thickened and coats the back of a spoon.
Pour the mixture into a prebaked 9-inch pie crust.
Beat 3 egg whites until stiff. While beating, gradually add 6 tablespoons of white sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time. Beat well after each addition. Add 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla.
Spread the meringue evenly over the top of the pie, all the way to the edges. If you don't spread it to the crusts to seal, the meringue may weep and shrink.
Put the pie in a preheated 375°F oven until the meringue has browned lightly. The butterscotch pie recipe is ready to serve....enjoy it !
