So… butterscotch pudding pie with whipped cream, UH YUM!
Cooked, creamy Butterscotch pudding nestled into a sweet buttery graham cracker crust. When totally chilled, we top with mounds of fluffy, slightly sweetened vanilla whipped cream. HEAVEN by the slice!
butterscotch pudding pie with whipped cream
- pie plate
- large saucepan
- 2 mixing bowls
- Non Stick Spray
- electric hand mixer or stand mixer for whipped cream
- 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- ½ cup melted butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 tbsp granulated white sugar
- 4 tbsp butter salted or unsalted
- ¾ cup brown sugar
- 1½ cups milk
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 4 tbsp cornstarch
- ¼ tsp salt
- 4 large egg yolks
- 1½ tsp vanilla extract
- 1⅓ cups whipping cream cold
- 2 tbsp powdered sugar or regular granulated sugar works too
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Tiny pinch of salt
- Add your cornstarch and salt to a heatproof medium to large bowl and set aside.
- Add your egg yolks to another bowl (doesn’t have to be a big bowl) and set aside.
- Add your butter to a medium saucepan and melt over medium heat.
- Add the brown sugar, whisking until everything is melted and starts to boil. Let boil while you stir for 1 minute, BE CAREFUL.
- Carefully add the milk and cream and bring to a simmer (just below a boil), don’t stop stirring.
- Remove the hot mixture from the heat and pour about 1/3 cup into the cornstarch and salt mixture, whisking all the while to blend the hot mixture into the cornstarch.
- When you have a nice smooth mix, pour this whole mixture BACK into the saucepan, and bring it back to a boil.
- Now we will do the same with the egg yolks.
- Remove the saucepan from the heat and pour about 1/3 cup of the hot mixture into the egg yolks, whisking constantly until smooth and well blended.
- Return the egg mixture back to the saucepan and bring back to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil, stirring, for about 1/2 minute.
- Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla.
- Very carefully, pour the cooked filling into the pie crust.
- Immediately cover the surface of the pudding with plastic wrap, so it will have no air to form a skin.
- Refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours, or until thoroughly chilled.
- While it’s chilling whip your whipped cream, sugar and vanilla with a tiny pinch of salt until stiff peaks form. Pop in the fridge to wait for your pie to be ready!
