We love this. It has a subtle, wonderful taste, not as strong as butterscotch.


  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 T. fllour
  • 3 T. cornstarch
  • 2 cups milk
  • 3 egg yolks
  • vanilla
  • butter


Put the sugar in heavy skillet and stir until it all melts.(you need quite a large skillet because when the milk is added, it boils up) It turns quite brown, but don't let it burn. Add the milk to this and stir until it combines with the milk. Beat the eggs and add a bit of the hot mixture to the yolks and then put them back into the milk mixture. Add all other indg.,except the vanilla and butter, and cook until thick. Add butter and vanilla after you remove from heat. Put in baked pie shell and top with meringue.
