Such a great dessert! I can hardly wait for an excuse to make again.

Not As Good As I Expected

When I saw the picture of this ice cream pie, I was very excited. I thought for sure it would be wonderful, but I ended up being dissapointed. While it was still good and I ate it, it just wasn't delicious like I had hoped for and I am a big butterscotch fan. I would suggest adding a layer of fudge sauce or chocolate syrup to improve the flavor. Using sugared pecans instead of just regular ones would help, also.

This was the perfect dessert to take to my in-laws. I think Mom is the only person I know who doesn't like chocolate but she loves butterscotch.
