  • 1 batch pie crust uncooked
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped or halved pecans


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Flatten the pie crust on to a 9-inch pie pan and place in the refrigerator.
  • Melt the butter and butterscotch chips together in the microwave for about 1 minute 30 seconds, stirring between each 30 second mark. (The texture should be a smooth paste, not runny.)
  • In a large bowl or mixer; bring together the corn syrup, eggs, vanilla, and butter/butterscotch mixture until well blended.
  • Stir in the pecans.
  • Pour the pie filling into the uncooked pie crust.
  • Bake for 60-70 minutes, or until most of the pie seems stable (a little jiggle in the center is okay).
  • Let cool for 2 hours at room temperature, then serve or refrigerate for later!


*Feel free to make your own homemade pie crust, use a pie crust mix, or buy a pre-made uncooked pie crust from the grocery store!
*To add a butterscotch drizzle, simply melt 1/4 cup butterscotch with 1/2 Tablespoon of butter or oil and drizzle over the entire pie. So good!
