For Holiday Blues: Dolly Parton’s Butterscotch Pie

0  comments

Apparently in Dollywood, it does not take a holiday for Dolly Parton to share the secrets of baking a Butterscotch pie. So if you are in for the holiday blues even if it is not yet holiday then you are in for a treat of this particular recipe.

Dolly and Butterscotch Pie

Here’s the step by step guide on how to make the heavenly Butterscotch Pie with a twist of the country icon:

Ingredients for Butterscotch Pie ala Dolly Parton

For the crust:

1 ¾ c. chopped pecans

¼ tsp. salt

3 Tbsp. butter, softened

Vegetable oil cooking spray

3 Tbsp. brown sugar

 

For the filling:

1 c. brown sugar                               2 egg yolks, beaten

2 Tbsp. cornstarch                           ¾ c. condensed milk, diluted with ¾ c. water

2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour               1 Tbsp. vanilla extract

2 Tbsp. butter                                    whipped cream, for garnish

¼ tsp. salt

 

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Coat a 9- or 10-inch pie plate with vegetable oil cooking spray.

Make the crust:

  1. Combine the pecans, butter, sugar and salt in a small bowl and mix thoroughly with a fork.
  2. Transfer the mixture to the pie pan. Press mixture evenly into the bottom and up the sides of the pan.
  3. Bake until fragrant and browned, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven to cool. Reduce the oven temperature to 300°F.

 

Make the filling:

  1. Combine the brown sugar, cornstarch, flour, butter and salt in the top of a double boiler over medium-high heat and stir to combine.
  2. Add the egg yolks and continue to stir until incorporated. Gradually add the milk, stirring constantly until the mixture thickly coats the back of a spoon and is smooth.
  3. Stir in vanilla and pour the mixture into the pie shell. Bake for 15 minutes, until the filling is warmed through and firm.
  4. Let cool and serve with a “Dolly-up” of whipped cream. Makes one 8- to 10-inch single-crust pie.

This serves eight people.
