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.
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!
What ever you do, do not let any of the yolk or any other fatty substance into the meringue. Wash all utensils and the bowl before whisking. Even a little yolk ruins the meringue.#2 make sure the pie filling is good and thick. Also, the pie filling should still be hot when you cover with the meringue. All lessons learned on the first try.
