This blows that box of jello pudding out of the water.

Top Review by Sydney Mike

It was a pleasure making this recipe! So easy to put together & such a delicious pie! I almost always get my butterscotch fix from the chips or packaged pudding, so this was a definite treat ~ A definite keeper that I'll be making again before long!

  6. Cook on the stovetop or on the top of a double-boiler until thickened.
  7. If you like, use the egg WHITES to make a meringue. I usually dont, though.
