Well I finally got around to it! I finally made something butterscotch! Yay me!
This Marvelous Butterscotch Pie is something to write home about, especially after you've devoured it like a mad woman, with head in the fridge and huge forkfuls going in the mouth. Afterwards, I was just hoping no one was watching me in this act of barbaric pie-eating.
Yes, it was that bad. Still hoping no one saw me. But, can you blame me? It's lovely!
What's great about this pie, is it's easy to make.
Pudding is not hard to make and home-made pudding beats all any pudding that comes in a box, whenever you have the chance to spare a few minutes (approximately 10 minutes to whip up) and make something so freaking good, you'll be like, "wth"!
"Why wasn't I making this before!? Am I insane?" (Yes, I talk to myself and this is verbatim what I was saying to myself and some people do consider talking to oneself, "insane", but then others say talking to oneself, refers to being "genius".
So, I am going with the latter, thank you very much.)
So, back to this gorgeous Marvelous Butterscotch Pie!
I tell you, it's like no other and it's one of the best pudding pies I've ever eaten. This will definitely impress your family.
It's a very mellow butterscotch pudding. It's not overpowering, but has just enough rich flavor to be noticed. It's ultra creamy smooth and the pie crust and whipped topping in each bite, makes you want to scarf down the whole thing ASAP.
Trust me, I know...remember? I'm the one that was hoping no one was watching me, talking to myself <--- no, I'm not insane!
Here's the recipe! Enjoy!
