Ingredients

Butterscotch Pie

  • Graham 9-inch pie shell or standard pie shell
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 1/4 cups Dixie Crystals Light Brown Sugar
  • 4 large egg yolks, beaten
  • 6 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

    Whipped Cream

    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 375F. Best results are obtained by pre-baking graham pie shell. If a standard pie shell is used, also pre-baking is necessary. Prepare as usual or follow manufacturer’s directions.
    2. In a saucepan large enough to hold all ingredients, combine milk and 1 cup brown sugar and bring to a boil.
    3. Meanwhile place egg yolks in a separate bowl, add remaining brown sugar and very rapidly whisk until well combined. Add cornstarch and salt and whisk until completely smooth.
    4. Add about a cup of boiling milk to egg yolk bowl and whisk rapidly. Pour bowl into boiling milk and whisk until thick bubbles form and custard has thickened.** Thickening will happen very quickly.  
    5. Remove from heat and do not whisk any longer as this will break down this mixture and make it runny.  
    6. Add butter and vanilla and stir gently using a spatula or whisk. Once combined pour into prebaked pie shell. Let set in refrigerator for 6 hours or overnight. 
    7. Just before serving, prepare whipped cream. Top with whipped cream just before serving, if desired.

    **Continue to stir gently during entire cooking period. Stirring too vigorously may cause mixture to break down and thin out. Significantly overcooking thickened mixtures such as puddings, pies and cake fillings may cause mixture to thin out as it cools.

    My grandmother always made butterscotch pie and this one took me right back to her kitchen. The filling was so smooth and rich and incredibly simple to put together. I used a graham cracker crust but this would be wonderful in a traditional pie shell as well.

    1. Precaliente el horno a 375F. Los mejores resultados se obtienen horneando previamente la cáscara de pastel Graham. Si se usa una base de pastel estándar, también es necesario hornear previamente. Prepárese como de costumbre o siga las instrucciones del fabricante.
    2. En una cacerola lo suficientemente grande para contener todos los ingredientes, combine la leche, 1 taza de azúcar morena o 4 paquetes Redi-Measure y deje hervir.
    3. Mientras tanto, coloque las yemas de huevo en un recipiente aparte, agregue el azúcar morena restante y bata muy rápidamente hasta que estén bien combinadas. Agregue la maicena y la sal y bata hasta que esté completamente suave.
    4. Agregue aproximadamente una taza de leche hirviendo al tazón de yema de huevo y bata rápidamente. Vierta el tazón en la leche hirviendo y bata hasta que se formen burbujas espesas y las natillas se hayan espesado. El engrosamiento ocurrirá muy rápidamente.
    5. Retirar del fuego y no batir más, ya que esto romperá esta mezcla y la hará líquida.
    6. Agregue la mantequilla y la vainilla y revuelva suavemente con una espátula o batidor. Una vez combinado, vierta en la base para tarta precocida. Deje reposar en el refrigerador durante 6 horas o toda la noche.
    7. Justo antes de servir, prepare la crema batida. Cubra con crema batida justo antes de servir, si lo desea.
