How to Make Butterscotch Pecan Pie

Butterscotch pecan pie is a decadent twist on classic pecan pie, thanks to the addition of butterscotch chips. A flaky, buttery crust is paired with a gooey pecan-butterscotch filling to create the perfect homemade fall dessert, & using just 8 simple ingredients!

– pie crust – unsalted butter – light corn syrup – light brown sugar – salt – butterscotch chips – eggs – vanilla extract – toasted pecans

Recipe Ingredients

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. and move oven rack to lower third of oven. Line a baking sheet with a piece of foil and set aside.

Recipe Instructions

On a floured surface, roll out your pie dough into a large disc, about ⅛" thick. Transfer your dough into a 9-inch pie pan and gently press it into the pan.

Recipe Instructions

Use a paring knife or scissors to cut off any excess dough, leaving about ½" of overhang. Fold the overhang underneath itself so that it's leaning on the edge of the pie plate, and crimp the edges with a fork. Place in the refrigerator to chill.

Recipe Instructions

In a medium saucepan, combine the butter,  corn syrup, brown sugar, and salt over medium-low heat, until butter is melted. Remove from the heat and stir in butterscotch chips. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes.

Recipe Instructions

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs and vanilla extract until well blended.
