Butterscotch Torte

"It's best to make the graham cracker cake for this torte the day before, because the flavor improves as it mellows. The recipe makes plenty of yummy butterscotch sauce, so you can drizzle some over the top and have extra to serve on the side. --Lavonne Hartel Williston. North Dakota"
