Butterscotch Pumpkin Pie

Hello, you pie-loving humans. I’m here with another pie. This one is slightly different.

A: Because you make it in a tart pan (I used a circle one would do just fine or if you’re like this is annoying just use a regular 9-inch pie dish, you can do that, too!)
B: There aren’t a ton of spices in this. Like, barely at all.
C: Hello, butterscotch. It’s all about pumpkin and butterscotch and their sweet and caramel-y-like union.

This recipe starts with sweet butterscotch. A few years ago I was very confused as to what the difference was between butterscotch vs. caramel.

Butterscotch Pumpkin Pie

It’s this easy: butterscotch is made with brown sugar, where caramel is made with white sugar.

That’s it. I like my butterscotch not burnt or taken too far but just right.

If you hate making pie crust, this is super easy. It’s a gingersnap crust taken from the No-Bake Pumpkin Pie from The Year of Cozy. I steal from myself!

Butterscotch Pot de Creme

You want to know what a really bad idea sounds like? Of course you do! It sounds like this:

Be home all alone with your really friendly, non-protective corgi and then binge-watch The Jinx. You know, that documentary about the rich murderer who dismembered his neighbor, along with a few other people. I’m not sure you can exist in the world and NOT know about this series. The news of him being arrested is everywhere. But even with him in jail, watching that show all by yourself, in a creaky old apartment is a recipe for a very terrified Adrianna. NO BUENO.

You want to know what a really good idea sounds like? Yes you do! This pot de creme. Girl. It’s good.

It comes from one of my favorite funny ladies, recipe writers, authors and bloggers,Real Sweet: More Than 80 Crave-Worthy Treats Made with Natural Sugars is SO delicious and entertaining; I read through every single recipe headnote because I found them absurd and ridiculous, in a really good way. I smiled my way through the book.

Bourbon Butterscotch Pudding with Caramel Sauce

Desserts

Schemllo! Hi! What’s up!! How are you?! I’m well. Thanks. I have three Friday significant thoughts to share with you:

1. The Millionaire Matchmaker lady scares me. Like a lot.

2. When it rains in Los Angeles (which is like twice a year) everybody’s cuteness goes up a notch. They bring their serious rain gear ‘A’ game–it’s kind of intense. Boys have peacoats on. They wear those rustic looking boots that I love. Girls look spiffy in their Hunter boots. Everybody is wearing big pretty big sweaters. Everybody is drinking coffee. It’s a good look.

3. I learned that bourbon is delicious in everything. Like everything. Just everything.
