This is definitely my new go to pumpkin pie! The butterscotch taste is just barely there - not enough to make in non-traditional, but just enough to make it special.
WOW, this is a GREAT pie! It has such a creamy texture and is sooo yummy! The butterscotch really goes perfectly with the pumpkin and makes this special! LOVED IT! :)
I used this great recipe for the crust: Aunt Jennie's Pie Crust (With Oil).
I only used 1 egg and 1 flax egg in the filling and yogurt in place of cream as I was out of the latter. The tang from the yogurt was a nice contrast to the sweetness from the butterscotch chips. I also left out the sugar in the filling and found it was plenty sweet like that. Definitely a keeper that I cant wait to make again. THANKS for sharing, Syd!
Made and reviewed on recommendation of Weekend Cooker in December 2011.
I made this for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it! I do not usually like pumpkin pie, but with the butterscotch it sweetened it up and made it so good!! I like that it has a top crust too, that is my favorite part. I couldn't find a lattice cutter and no time to order one so I used a small leaf cookie cutter to make a design. Also made this for DSs Thanksgiving pie sale and it was one of the firsts to go!!
Chose this recipe because it seemed to be a somewhat basic recipe, except for the butterscotch, but I will be the first to say that the butterscotch definately gives it great flavor, and a unique recipe for me to keep, we all enjoyed it very much and is a great change of pace. Looking forward to making this again for Thanksgiving. Made for PRMR tag..
An interesting change of pace from my usual pumpkin pie. This unexpected combo of flavors worked better than I thought it might. While I don't think this will become my everyday go-to pumpkin pie, I will certainly keep this in the rotation, especially for those fans of butterscotch I have in my circle of friends and family. I may lighten it up a bit by omitting the top crust; while it was good and looked pretty, I don't know if it did much to enhance the flavor. Even so, my fiance loved this! Thanks for sharing!
