Grandma liked to cook and she used to love looking through cookbooks for different recipes. This is a pie that she said she made a lot when my dad was younger and is a favorite. Like grandma wrote on the bottom of the recipe card for this pie, "Make sure you enjoy."

Butterscotch is one of those old-fashioned pies that will transport you back to grandma's kitchen. After one bite of this pie, you might find yourself eating it straight from the pie plate. The pie is rich, sweet, and silky. It has a texture similar to a thick custard. Just heavenly. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
