Nothing beats homemade butterscotch, especially around the holidays.  I love, love, love homemade butterscotch!  This sweet confection is popular in Amish kitchens because you probably already have the ingredients for a good butterscotch in your pantry.  Marilyn, a long time Amish Cook reader tried the recipe and shared some photos with us.  Yum!  Try Lovina’s recipe here:
1 pre-baked 9-inch pie shell
2 eggs
1-1/2 cups brown sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 1 /2 cups water
2 cups milk, scalded
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Whipped cream topping 
Set out pie shell. In a large, heavy saucepan, combine 3/4 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 3/4 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.
Add salt, butter and vanilla extract. Let cool for 15 minutes, then pour into baked shell. Chill in your cellar or if you have a refrigerator until set. Frost the pie with the whipped cream topping.

    How much water? It doesn’t say in the ingredients.

  3. This looks awesome. I love butterscotch. I don’t cook, but I may be tempted to try this. Butterscotch pie is my husbands favorite.
