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 mentioned 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. 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!
So 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.”
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!
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.
- 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
- 1/3 cup butterscotch morsels
- 3 tbsp heavy cream
- 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.
- 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.
- During that time, place the pie crust in the pie pan and press the edges with a fork.
- Then in a bowl, stir together the butterscotch mixture and brown sugar.
- Add the eggs and vanilla and stir just until combined.
- 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.
- 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.
- Drizzle butterscotch ganache over pie and ice cream.
