Butterscotch Brownie Pie

Well, a million years and a new theme later, I’ve got a recipe for you guys!

I hope everyone had a lovely Father’s Day! This year when I asked my dad what he wanted me to make him, he surprised me and said “something butterscotch.” Typically everyone in my family says “something chocolate.” He specifically mentionedΒ these butterscotch brownies, but I wanted to do something more than “just brownies.”

I feel so lucky and blessed to have parents who are so supportive of me and my blog. They comment on every post, share everything on social media, show it to people on their phones. Β My dad has a blog too, and we talk about blog stuff a lot. My mom is probably so tired of hearing it, but she never says that!

My first thought was to do an ice cream cake similar to this one from Southern Living. But with butterscotch. Which is totally an underrated flavor, by the way. There should be more butterscotch things in the world.

SoΒ then I came across this Fudge Pie recipe at work on Friday and new it had to be pie. I just thought, “Yep. Pie. Done.”

While that fudge pie looks completely mouthwatering, I decided not to adapt it to butterscotch, but adapt my butterscotch brownies to more of a fudgy texture.

It’s extremely easy to make, really. There are only seven ingredients in the pie, including the pie crust, which is just the store-bought kind. Super basic stuff!

Pie and ice cream go together just as great, if not more, than cake and ice cream. Or maybe ice cream is just good with everything. πŸ™‚ You can use whatever flavor you want, but I decided just to go with classic vanilla.

To top off this Father’s Day treat, I made some butterscotch ganache to drizzle over it. It intensifies the flavor of the whole pie and just completes it.

Butterscotch Brownie Pie

ingredients

    butterscotch brownie pie:
  • 1 1/4 cup butterscotch morsels, plus more for sprinkling on top
  • 5 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 9-inch refrigerated pie crust
  • butterscotch ganache:
  • 1/3 cup butterscotch morsels
  • 3 tbsp heavy cream

instructions

    butterscotch brownies:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray a pie pan with nonstick spray. Set pie crust out on your table or counter to thaw.
  2. Fill a double boiler with a couple inches of water and set over medium heat. In the bowl of the double boiler, add the butterscotch chips and butter. Stir constantly, making sure the butterscotch doesn't stick to the pan, until completely melted and combined. Remove from heat and let it cool for about 5 minutes.
  3. During that time, place the pie crust in the pie pan and press the edges with a fork.
  4. Then in a bowl, stir together the butterscotch mixture and brown sugar.
  5. Add the eggs and vanilla and stir just until combined.
  6. Next fold in the salt and flour until just combined. Pour batter into the pie crust and sprinkle with butterscotch morsels. Bake uncovered for 10 minutes. Then cover the edges of the pie with foil so the crust won't burn, or cover the whole pie with foil that has a large circle cut out of the middle so that the batter is exposed and the crust is not. Bake for 30 minutes, or until center has set.
  7. butterscotch ganache:
  8. In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring cream to a simmer and then remove from heat. Pour cream over butterscotch morsels in a heat-proof bowl. Let the cream sit for five minutes and then stir until smooth.
  9. Drizzle butterscotch ganache over pie and ice cream.
