Ingredients:

  • 1 unbaked 9-inch (4-cup volume) deep-dish pie shell*
  • 1 2/3 cups (11-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Butterscotch Flavored Morsels, divided
  • 3/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups pecan halves, coarsely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups whipped cream (optional)

Directions:

PREHEAT oven to 350º F.

MELT 1 1/3 cups morsels in medium, uncovered microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; STIR. Morsels may retain some of their shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted.

ADD corn syrup, eggs, flour and salt to melted morsels. Beat on medium until smooth. Stir in pecans. Pour pecan mixture into pie shell.

BAKE for 40 to 45 minutes or until knife inserted into center comes out with little bits of filling attached. If browning too quickly, cover with foil. Cool on wire rack for 2 hours. Refrigerate 1 hour or until serving time.

TO GARNISH AND SERVE:
LINE
baking sheet with wax paper.

PLACE remaining morsels in heavy-duty plastic bag. Microwave on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 30 to 45 seconds; knead. Microwave at 10- to 15-second intervals, kneading until smooth. Cut tiny corner from bag. Drizzle 10 circular designs about 2 inches high and wide onto prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate for 5 to 10 minutes or until firm.

PLACE 10 dollops of whipped cream around edge of pie. Remove drizzle designs from refrigerator. With tip of knife, gently remove designs from wax paper and insert, standing up, into dollops. Serve immediately.

NOTES
*
If using frozen pie shell, use deep-dish style. Do not thaw. Bake on baking sheet.

TIPS:
1/3 cup NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels can also be melted and made into drizzle designs instead of the Butterscotch Flavored Morsels.
Two shallow (2-cup volume) pie shells can be substituted for the one deep-dish pie shell. Follow directions above and bake for 30 to 35 minutes.

    MMMMM....

    This sounds very good and easy! I am going to try making this for Christmas! Thanks!

    2 great pies in 1!

    Mandi Bundren from ,

    Very easy recipe that makes a delicious pie! The butterscotch is more subtle than I thought it would be, but it works because I was afraid the pie would be too sweet. It did require a longer baking time than stated in the recipe. I let it bake almost an hour because at 45 minutes it was still liquid inside. Cooking it about an hour helped it set a little better, but made it a little tough to cut through the next day. Maybe some temperature/time adjustments next time will give me a perfect pie. Still delicious though!

    This pie baked perfectly and has a very good taste - not too sweet as many pecan pies are. It is creamy, but firm and this one is a keeper.

    Perfectly Easy

    Hillary Davis from grove city, OH

    This pie is amazing.I never tried pecan pie until I found this recipe and I love it. Everyone I have made it for loves it as well saying they love it because it is not a sweet as a regular pecan pie. The thing I love most about this pie is that it is so easy to make.

    Best ever pie according to my daughter!

    Ron Pearson from Barnes, WI

    I baked this for our pre-Christmas dinner (because of weather, we celebrated early) and my pie was the hit of the desserts (even though I overcooked it slightly) It was easy and very good if I do say so myself. Even my grandson liked it.

    butterscotch lovers alert!!

    nancy ogg from Lake Worth, FL

    My husband loves butterscotch so I decided to make this for him on Thanksgiving. What a hit, so much so that he said he will divorce me if I lose this recipe. His twin sister wants the recipe now too. I must say for an easy to make pie it sure is yummy! Thanks Very Best and I'm printing a few more.

    Ho Hum

    Nicole Lehmann from Hammond, LA

    This pie had a good taste after you got past the hard-as-a-brick exterior. I baked it for the least amount of time and it wasn't done in the center. I then baked for 10 minute increments and checked each time. It was never done as the instructions stated. By the time I gave up & took it out, when it cooled it was brick hard.

    Dad's Favorite

    Penny Cobb from Bailey, NC

    I made this for Thanksgiving dinner at my parents. My dad loves butterscotch and this pie didn't disappoint him. It was very popular with young and old alike. Not too sweet but not too nutty either. I will definitely make this one again.

    best of the best pecan pie

    susan spelker from COMMERCE TWP, MI

    I always make my husband a pecan pie or two around the holidays, as it is his favorite. This year I decided to try this one. It smelled so heavenly, it did not make it to Thanksgiving. Of all the pies I have tried, this one is his absolute favorite! If you like pecan pie, this one is a MUST have!!

    On Chavez from Yuba City, CA

    It was great. The only problem I had was the baking time. It took I believe at least 1 and a half to bake. I will still bake this because I love the taste of it. Just have to bake longer than the recipe says.
