    That butterscotch pie reminds me of the butterscotch pudding my mother used to make for me as a kid because it was my favorite. I think I need to make this pie in her honor. I know she’d be pleased.

    I do not see the secret ingredient for thickening anywhere here. The caramel pie uses gelatin. One of the other pies uses cornstarch.
    So what is the secret ingredient?? Is it the gelatin?

    Hi Kevin,

    Your article on the pies brought back a wave of nostalgia for me.

    I can remember when I was little (60+ years ago) mom always made a number of pies for the holidays….pumpkin, apple, chocolate cream, butterscotch, blackberry and strawberry rhubarb…..yes, our family enjoyed pies.

    My younger brother always wanted “Buttercroch” pie (no, it is not misspelled)…while dad liked the chocolate cream. And I still remember when mom would ask uncle Pete which pie he wanted, he would reply, “Yes.” So she would give him a slice of each.

    Those were the good and old happy days we each, in their own way, hold dear to our hearts. 😀

    PS…None of these folks are any longer with us….Mom passed in 1988. Uncle Pete a few years later, Dad in 2002 and my younger brother, just last January. But, the memories of that time will be carried with me until it is my time to pass. 🙂
