Butterscotch, baby!

First up, let me tell you that the Easter Pops are coming. Just not today. I made some cute ones this weekend, but I didn’t finish them up until really late. So, once I go through the gazillion photos I took of them trying to get a nice shot, I’ll show you what I’ve been up to. In the meantime, here’s a pie.

Butterscotch Pecan Pie

A butterscotch pie.

Bowl of Butterscotch

Ooooh butterscotch, how I love thee.

Now, here’s a little secret. I’ve never made a pie crust from scratch. I’m ashamed, I know.

Butterscotch Pecan Pie

See, there it is… aluminum. Don’t disown me.

It’s just that I don’t make pies that often and well, the frozen crusts are so easy. (Somebody, anybody, are you with me?)

I’ll learn how to make one soon. I promise. Maybe. Probably. Okay, you talked me into it.

But frozen crust or not, the pie was soooooooo goooooood!
Here’s the recipe I used.

Here’s a side view. The smell was so delicious, this slice didn’t even make it through my little photoshoot.

Bitten Butterscotch Pie

I bit right in like a pizza. Nope… no fork.

Again, soooooooo goooooood!

And, one more time, just because. Butterscotch… YUM!

P.S. Anybody have a good pie crust recipe? An easy one? For beginners?

  1. I love spinach in my qihcue! Also, I most always used Pillsbury crust – they are good and convenient. I still like to make my own crusts sometimes, but all in all, the work isn’t always worth it when the Pillsbury taste good.BTW, we say hankerin’ up here too and I’m a damn Yankee! LOL.

  2. btw the above recipe i posted is for a basic pie crust, the one i always use

    1 cup flour
    1/2 cup Crisco
    1/4 cup ice cold water
    Place flour in med size bowl. mix in Crisco till mixture resembles coarse crumbs. and water and mix just until dough comes together. chill in fridge before rolling out,
    simple recipes are best. i love this pie crust recipe. never screws me over.

  4. I cannot get the link to work for this recipe. Please, please, please tell me that you have it and that your willing to share it?!
    Thanks so much!

  5. Made this pie for Thanksgiving which my Husband and family gobbled it all up!! I have requests to make 4 more for Christmas. Thank you for all the great ideas!

  6. Man. You know, I live here in the middle east where the ONLY chips you find at ALL is hershey chocolate chips…….

  7. I’m late to find this blog but absolutely love it! I’m a bakeaholic! I saw your post on requesting an pie crust recipe and that is my specialty. I used to bake pies for a local tavern and I have always had rave reviews on my crust and it is sooo easy. I use the pic crust recipe for pat-in-the-pain oil pastry in the Betty Crocker cookbook. This recipe uses Crisco oil instead of shortening and it is super easy to use! I wipe the counter down with a damp rag and place a piece of plastic wrap on top so it sticks to the counter then place my dough on top and another piece of plastic wrap on top then roll the dough. It is so easy to place the dough in the pie pan since it adheres to the plastic wrap then you can gently peel the wrap off once you have your crust where you want it. Goodluck!

  8. can i get the recipe for the pie above? thanks

  9. I know it’s been quite a while since you posted this, but I wasn’t sure if you’d ever found a good pie crust recipe! I use this one:
    I actually just made a pie from scratch for the first time a few weeks ago, and I was assured by my mom the crust was the best she’d ever had. :) I used butter-flavored shortening instead of lard, and I baked it for 20 minutes, rather than 10.
    But, back to your recipe, I’m getting ready to make it now! Butterscotch is my dad’s favorite, so I’m making it for his birthday. It looks yummy! :)

  10. I love butterscotch. its so pretty.

  11. You had me at Butterscotch…..

  12. Aha, here is the recipe for Butterscotch Tart complete with the pastry base.

    It's very simple, relatively quick and extremely delicious.

    You will have to accept proclamations of undying love from anyone who tries it though. You have been warned!

  13. Great blog! I have a Butterscotch Tart recipe on my blog somewhere that you might be interested in trying, complete with the base. The only thing is the measurements aren't in cups (I'm in England), but I'd be happy to help convert the measurements if you're interested.


  14. i wish i could get some of your ingredients over here! no peeps, butterscotch or strawberry cake mix :( i’ve been catching up on your posts….i am so trying your choc cake from paula deen. i wish i could get a lemon cake like that. i love love lemon deserts. lemon bars, lemon cake, lemon meringue pie, ect. i’ll stay tuned to your blog for something lemony.

  15. Er…
    Someone I know has a really great recipe for pie crust, and it’s easy. But they never write it down, so I don’t know it :(

  16. actually, Pioneer Woman has a recipe for it – it’s awesome!

  17. Never fail pie crust. Super easy to roll out. Extra dough freezes well for use later.

    1 lb. lard
    5 cups flour
    1 cup regular 7-up, sprite, or eqivalant soda pop (not diet)

    Use a pastry cutter to combine lard and flour. Add soda and mix well. Chill before rolling.

    Good Luck!

    P.S. I love your blog. You are extremely creative and your photos are fantastic!

  18. Wow!….You always surprise me! I love your creations! I feel your full passion in your job. Keep it up!
