Grandma's Butterscotch Pie

Melissa Snow


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".
