Quick Butterscotch Cream Pie

This pie was was really just an excuse to make some whipped cream and see what the superior sweeter was — confectioners sugar or granulated. Out of habit, I’ve always sweetened my whipped cream with confectioners’ sugar, but  some people feel it imparts a chalky texture and prefer granulated. Another thing I’ve always done is […]

This is our favorite butterscotch pie recipe, and since the last time I posted a 7 inch version, I decided to re-post the recipe for a more useful size (9 inch) pie. Hopefully some of you will try it, because it’s a very good rendition of classic butterscotch pie. Sue shared this recipe a few […]

Sue’s teacher had asked each child for a recipe, made mimeograph copies, then gave the children collections of […]

Butterscotch Pie

UPDATE:  I’ve made this recipe many times since I first posted it in 2010. Over the years I’ve grown to prefer a whipped cream topping rather than the meringue.  However, it’s good with meringue if that’s what you’re into.  One thing you should know is that this pie is creamy.  It’s stiff enough so that […]

A few days ago I made a butterscotch pie from one of my favorite cookbooks,  Classic Home Desserts. The pie tasted great, but it was slightly runny when cut. I’m not sure if this was because I used 2% milk or if that’s just how the recipe is supposed to be, but I decided to […]

Butterscotch Pie

A friend emailed yesterday asking if I had a recipe for butterscotch pie. I did, but couldn’t remember which one was the best. Butterscotch pie is Todd’s favorite, but I’ve had varying degrees of success with the recipes I’ve used. The main problem has always been runniness. Since I wasn’t sure which recipe to recommend, […]

Caramel Pie

Here’s a recipe you don’t run across every day. It’s an old one — a very basic caramel cream pie which was invented in 1952. I believe it was a Pillsbury Bake-off entry one year, but am still gathering details.  Wherever it came from, it’s a winner.  With 1 tablespoon of gelatin, I found the […]
