My friends' grandmother made the best butterscotch pie and since her grandmother died, we have been searching for a recipe that would provide similar results. We were having no luck until I spotted this recipe in ALL YOU magazine. My friend was so appreciative - it isn't exactly like her granny's because there isn't meringue on top, but it is still the absolute best one yet! She likes the whip cream topping even better! I have made this pie about a dozen times since then and the only change I made was to buy refigerated pie dough to cut some prep time out. Everyone who has tried this pie when I make it (when I can get my friend to share) always asks for the recipe. Thanks so much for such a great recipe! @@@
This is the first butterscotch pie I've made. I must say it was awesome!! I love the melted chocolate chips on the pie crust. It gives the crust an extra crunch, and it keeps it from getting soggy. I didn't change anything. Next time I make it, I might cut the topping down to 1 cup heavy cream. It was a little too much for my liking. But other than that, GREAT!!
