Sweet Recipe Time at Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

I woke up this morning and had an urge for something sweet and my morning oatmeal with turbinado sugar did not take care of it. What's a girl to do when she needs sweet stuff? Bake a pie!!! I'm so glad that Virgil Clark shared a recipe for one of my favorites....butterscotch pie! I thought I had better share it with all of you, just in case anyone else is having a sweet attack like me! :)

Old Fashioned Butterscotch Pie

1 1/2 cup brown sugar (light or dark)
1 cup water
3 eggs
4 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
4 tablespoons butter (or margarine)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
4 tablespoons granulated or powdered sugar


Add water to brown sugar in saucepan, bring to a boil and boil to make a thin syrup. Separate eggs. Stir flour into egg yolks and add milk gradually, stirring to prevent lumping. Add egg/flour/milk mixture to syrup and boil until thickens. Remove from heat and add butter, vanilla and salt. Pour into baked pie shell.

Top with meringue: egg whites beaten until stiff, adding cream of tartar and powdered sugar gradually while beating. Bake in 350 degree oven until peaks are lightly browned.
