Next to turkey, the biggest constant I can think of when it comes to Thanksgiving is pumpkin pie. I can’t imagine a Thanksgiving without it. I don’t tend to get too creative when it comes to pumpkin pie, as the simple gold standard plain pumpkin pie recipe is pretty good stuff. But sometimes you have to think outside the box. Butterscotch Pumpkin Pie anyone?
Butterscotch and pumpkin are beautiful together. It’s a perfect balance of the traditional pumpkin pie flavor, with a delicious butterscotch flavor. Somehow both flavors come through without one over powering the other. It is wonderful. While I usually would say if you were making a variation on pumpkin pie, you might still want a regular one, that’s not the case with this. It’s got everything your regular pie does. Just with a butterscotch bonus.
If you are looking to mix up your pumpkin pie this year, but just a little, not a lot, you can’t go wrong with this recipe.
I have to admit, I’m kind of curious how this would taste if you used peanut butter chips. Might have to try that!
When I make pumpkin pie, I usually use slightly less milk than many people do and kick up the spices. We like a spicy, thick pie.
