Today's Sunday Supper event is HOLIDAY DESSERT RECIPES and is hosted by T.R. of Gluten Free Crumbley.

I very rarely post recipes on the blog that I don't like....because usually that means I have made something that was NOT edible. However, it's quite the opposite in this case. I am not a particularly huge fan of pecan pie. As in, I don't eat it and won't eat it. Ever. I really just don't like pie very much, but if the filling is good, I will eat the filling and not the crust (like you would a pizza). I made this pie for Nick because pecan pie is his favorite and he loves butterscotch.

Fortunately, I am apparently really good at making pecan pie because Nick LOVED it. I did test a bite thinking maybe the butterscotch would make me like it, but I was wrong. For someone who has a whole set of sweet teeth, you would think I would love something so sugary and sweet, but alas, this is just not my thing. I feel bad because I'm badmouthing this recipe, but if you like pecan pie and butterscotch, you will LOVE this pie. LOVE it. Plus it's nice to have a slight twist on classic foods at the holidays.

(Print)
What you need:
  • 1 ready-made pie crust (or your favorite homemade pie crust)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups halved pecans
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
Directions:
  1. Situate the pie crust in a deep-dish 9" pie dish.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together all of the remaining ingredients, reserving the pecans and the butterscotch chips.
  3. Add the pecans and the butterscotch chips, stir in with a spoon or spatula.
  4. Pour the mixture into the pie crust, be sure to scrap the bowl with a rubber spatula.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees for 60 to 70 minutes or until middle is set. Start checking around 45 minutes. If the crust is getting too browned, cover loosely with aluminum foil.
  6. Let cool completely before serving.
