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!
