This is one of my father's favorite pies! His Grandmother Kennedy would make this pie for him once a week for most of his life... when his grandmother passed away... his mother took over the job of making this pie every week.... my mother took over the job from her mother-in-law.... and I took over the job from my mother.... They are all gone now.... and I make the pie for my grandchildren..... A great recipe lives on through the generations!

Hope you enjoy this!

How to Make Great Grandma's Butterscotch Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Brown the butter in a pan, add sugar and stir constantly until sugar is dissolved. Add the water stirring constantly. Mix together well, the egg yolk, milk and corn starch. Add this to the sugar mixture stirring constantly while cooking until the pudding is thickened. Pour into a baked pie shell. Cool completely and then refrigerate until cold to make sure it is set and easier to cut.
  2. I like mine cold and plain, but you can garnish...

    *** Garnish with whipped cream just before serving. You can use meringue or cool whip or ice cream.
