Creamy Butterscotch Pie

Creamy Butterscotch Pie makes a wonderful dessert anytime.  Serve butterscotch pie with coffee, take it to a pot luck or gathering or make one for a friend. This butterscotch pie is delicious and easy to put together.   I love anything butterscotch and I could eat this one by myself.  Your friends and family will ask for the recipe and you will make this butterscotch pie many times. If you like butterscotch, this pie will become one of your favorites.  This is an old fashioned recipe that has been in my collection for a long time.  I can remember my mother making this creamy butterscotch pie.

Creamy Butterscotch pie is one of my family favorites.

1 (9 inch) pie shell, baked

1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup cornstarch

3 egg yolks, (Keep whites for meringue)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons margarine or butter

Bake crust and let cool.  In a pot on top of the stove mix milk, sugar, cornstarch, egg yolks, vanilla and salt with a whisk.  Add butter in one piece.  Cook on medium high heat for 5 to 7 minutes until butter melts and mixture thickens.  Stir constantly because this will burn easily.  Once thickened, remove from heat and pour into the pie crust.

Meringue

3 egg whites

1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Start beating egg whites, adding sugar while beating.  Add vanilla and continue until peaks are formed.  Spread on pie covering entire pie.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven until brown on top or place under broiler to brown.  Enjoy!
