Butterscotch Pie

We first discovered this pie in PEI, famous in the east coast of Canada, you may also hear it be called Sugar Pie in Quebec.

Recipe - Butterscotch Pie 

  • 4 egg yolks, lightly beaten
  • 2C brown sugar 
  • 1/2C flour 
  • 2T butter 
  • 1T vanilla extract 
  • 3C milk
  • Pinch of salt

Step 1
Add everything into a double boiler (make sure you remembered to seperate your eggs)

Step 2
Heat over med heat until thickened - stir constantly - will take a good 7-10 minutes

Step 3
Pour into 1 deep dish pre-cooked pie shell, or 2 regular pre-cooked pie shells

Step 4
At this point you could top with a meringue (using your left over egg whites) or leave plain

Step 5
bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes

If you didn't top with meringue, I like to serve with whipped cream on top

Family Thoughts 

We all love this pie, the kids, the adults - I could eat it right out of the pot, forget the pie shell!  It's a light flavour, probably lighter than you are thinking right now - which makes is a wonderful afternoon treat with a cup of tea!
