Butterscotch Pie 😍 Perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas!

This Butterscotch Pie recipe comes from Taste of Home magazine. I had never even tried butterscotch pie before, much less made it, but when I came across this recipe I knew I had to try it. I ADORE BUTTERSCOTCH!

You can’t find it anymore. I used to love to get Butterscotch Milkshakes from Baskin Robins but then they did away with the butterscotch syrup. Butterscotch used to be available all over the place but then the confectionary powers that be ruined it by ditching butterscotch for “salted caramel”, which, let’s face it, is just a poor excuse for butterscotch.

Anyway, here is the original recipe from Taste of Home magazine:

By the way, here is how I make my own homemade vanilla. WAY more cost effective than buying it in those little bottles: https://www.oldtimeknowledge.com/make-your-own-vanilla-extract/
