I’ve been on a butterscotch kick lately on this website, today is butterscotch pie. Doesn’t this look delicious? The pie in this photo came from an Amish bakery in Indiana. Yum!! Here is a recipe for a butterscotch pie given to me by an Amish woman in Pennsylvania. Give it a try!
- 1 pre-baked 9-inch pie shell
- 2 eggs
- 1-1/2 cups brown sugar
- ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
- 1 1 /2 cups water2 cups milk
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup butter
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- Whipped cream topping
- Set out pie shell. In a large, heavy saucepan, combine ¾ cup of the brown sugar and water.
- Bring to a boil over medium heat, and continue cooking for about 3-1/2 minutes or until mixture is thick and bubbly.
- Set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs until frothy.
- Add the flour and blend until smooth.
- Add the remaining ¾ cup brown sugar and blend.
- Slowly add the scalded milk, stirring constantly.
- Over low heat, reheat the sugar-water mixture until liquefied again.
- Pour the milk-egg mixture into it, stirring with a rubber spatula all the time.
- Cook over medium-low heat until mixture bubbles up and is very thick, 3 to 5 minutes.

- Chill in your cellar or if you have a refrigerator until set. Frost the pie with the whipped cream topping.
