What I did today!
3 from scratch butterscotch pies, plus 1 chocolate pie ( chocolate pecan pie minus the pecans).
1 is for a friends, 2 are for a family supper and the chocolate pie is for supper tomorrow night. Total time less than 2 hours ( I bought the pie shells).
Filling for butterscotch pie. Prebake crust for 10-12 minutes. In a double boiler,
1 cup packed brown sugar
4 TBSP corn starch
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups milk
Stir until thickened
2 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla
1TBSP butter of margarine
Stir until thickened, pour into precooked pie shell, bake in oven at 350 for 5 minutes.
I put some of the hot liquid into the egg yolk so it didn't cook and scramble.
Happy Saturday! PS its sunny and warm... Feels like early spring!
