If you are looking for a fun twist on the classic pumpkin pie recipe, then this Butterscotch Pumpkin Pie recipe is for you! As easy and delicious as traditional pumpkin pie, but this pie is infused with butterscotch flavor. Not too much, just enough!
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.
Let’s make some pie…

I was looking for a sweeter pumpkin pie recipe and came across this one. It is fabulous and was a big hit! Will be my regular Thanksgiving pie from now on. Love it!
I’m making homemade pie crust from scratch the night before I make this pie. Do I need to “blink bake” the crust before I put the pumpkin mixture in it?
Christi Johnstone says
I personally do not, but I know other people prefer to. If you typically like to with a pumpkin pie, then I would go ahead and do so.
Can you fully bake night before and cover in fridge for next day? Does it taste the same?
Christi Johnstone says
Yes, my family enjoys pumpkin pie for days after it’s made. I believe it’s better after having a chance to sit, chill and fully set.
