Cinnamon Butterscotch Pie Recipe: This Delicious Creamy Pie Deserves to Be on Your Thanksgiving Table

My mom loves butterscotch and cinnamon, so this butterscotch cinnamon pie recipe was a no-brainer for her birthday. It was a cinch to make and was absolutely delicious, not too sweet like a lot of butterscotch recipes I've made for her. Serve with whipped cream and a sprinkling of cinnamon. This will be on my Thanksgiving menu this year, too.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes plus time to chill 
Cook Time: 10 to 12 minutes
Total Time: 22 minutes plus time to chill 
Servings: Makes 1 pie


Here's how to make it:

Put the pie crust into a  pie plate. Flute the edges and prick the bottom all over with a fork. Bake in a preheated 450-degree F oven until golden brown, about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove and set aside.

Put the egg yolks into a small bowl and whisk.

In a saucepan, combine the brown sugar, flour, cornstarch, salt, cinnamon and milk. Whisk together and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring, about 5 minutes or until thickened.

Take about 1/3 cup of the hot filling and put it into the eggs yolks to temper. Stir. Whisk into the filling.

Add the butter and vanilla. Cook another 2 minutes.

Pour the filling into the pie shell. Let the pie cool about 30 minutes before refrigerating to completely chill, at least 2 hours.

Do you know if this recipe is pregnancy-safe since then eggs are only cooked for a couple minutes?

Because we are not medical professionals, I would advise you to discuss this with your doctor. Good question!
