cream of tartar
1 (9 inch)
unbaked pie crust
I used pillsbury crusts and added a little more brown sugar. I also added vanilla to the meringue.
It turned out very good. If you like butterscotch this is worth a try
This is a great recipe ! Slice 2 bananas into cooked crust, pour in butterscotch filling.... top with whipped cream........ it is the best 'Banana Cream Pie' you'll ever have !
easy beautiful and .. Delicious!
This is an amazing recipe. Cook on med-low and no double boilder is needed. Tastes just like the old fashioned Butterscotch Pies from long ago.
I was hoping that this would be like my grandma's recipe - and it was similar, but not the same. Overall, the recipe is good - the texture is nice. It is not overly sweet - in fact if I were to make it again, I would probably add 1/4-1/2 cup of brown sugar as I like my Butterscotch Pie really sweet. I followed the ingredients exactly and only changed the process (I did not use a double boiler - just used a pot and stirred the whole time - tempering the eggs and adding them at the appropriate time.) I took the pie to a party and everyone liked it. My custard did weep a bit, and the meringue shrunk and wept (although it was touching all around) so it was not pretty - but tasted good!
This is a great butterscotch cream pie! I've started making it for family thanksgiving for the past few years! It turns out beautifully and tastes delicious. Didn't change a thing! Don't be shy to make it...it isn't as complicate or difficult as it may look. Just take your time and watch the meringue in the oven so it doesn't over bake.
This pie is the tried and true Butterscotch Cream Pie!!
YUM. This came out super perfect. The only addition I had to the instructions was to cool the filling slightly before you add to the pie crust, this way your crust will not get mushy. Thanks so much for this super recipe! I made if for Christmas for my father in law who loved it!
