Butterscotch Apple Pie

I'm pretty sure my grandmother got this recipe off the back of a bag of butterscotch chips, probably in the late 60's. I remember it was a big hit and we'd request it from her. She was a great pie maker and taught me how to make and roll out crust, a talent I'm glad she shared with me but when she died in 1975, we couldn't find this recipe. After my mom passed, we were searching through boxes and found a notebook with recipe cards and slips of paper all in my grandmother's handwriting and she had tucked this recipe in it. I've served it many times and it's still a hit.

Prep:

30 Min

Cook:

1 Hr 10 Min

Ingredients

9 in
unbaked pie shell
5 c
peeled and sliced apples
6 oz
bag of butterscotch morsels (chips)
cinnamon
1/2 c
sugar
1/2 c
flour
2 tsp
salt
1 c
light cream

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine apples and butterscotch chips and put in pastry shell. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon
2
Mix sugar, flour and salt. Then add cream, about 1/3 first and stir to make a paste like mixture to get out the lumps first and then add the remaining cream and mix well. Drizzle over the apples trying to coat as many as you can.
3
Place the pie in a large brown paper bag (grocery size) and put in pre-heated over at 375 degrees about 70 minutes. I always use a baking sheet to get it in and out of the oven easier.
