Does anybody have an old recipe for butterscotch pudding/pie filling which uses a bit of vinegar, maybe melts sugar in pan, and uses eggs to make a genuine cream filling? My stepmom made it years ago and it was the real thing.

Check out this Food and Wine URL.
The recipe includes some crumbled toffee candy, but you wouldn't have to use it as it's only a "garnish".
The recipe does require using vinegar, and surprise...Bourbon. If I were making it and didn't want to use the bourbon, I would be substituting with apple juice. It's such a little bit anyway, that I can't think it's crucial.
I hope this helps,

If you will Google "homemade butterscotch pudding/pie filling recipe" you will get a lot of websites that have great recipes. Hope you find one that works for you.
Thank you; I read it and emailed it to myself. It looks like it contains all the things I remember her putting it it.
I will definitely make it, sans the bourbon and toffee, because I want to see if the base recipe is what I'm aiming for before I embellish it. Thanks everyone, so much.I'm the only one in family who likes butterscotch, but about once a year, I get a real hankering for it.
My oldest son loves Butterscotch cream pie and in all my years of attempts I just never got the hang of it. They're always too runny. I'd love to find a good recipe. Anyone have one?
My aunt , who is an excellent cook, used regular pudding mix...the cooked kind...but added 2 egg yolks to the mixture as it was cooking. Just whisk it in with the milk and follow the package directions.
I always thought she made everything from 'scratch' until I caught her one day!! She swore me to secrecy, so please don't tell!! LOL
I have always done what my mom did and that was just to use Jello cooked butterscotch pudding as the filling. Since she had celiac disease and could not tolerate flour, she made a crust out of corn flake crumbs, sugar, and butter, then put the pudding on top and whipped cream on top of that...YUMMY! I have also used graham wafer crumbs instead of the corn flake crumbs, either way it works out well and tastes great! Always get rave reviews from guests!
I just took a butterscotch pie to a senior citizens luncheon at church last week and received rave reviews. I use my Watkins brand Dessert and Frosting Mix. These come in many different flavors (banana, butterscotch, chocolate, coconut, lemon, rice pudding, vanilla, and tapioca). My mother and grandmother always ordered Watkins products when I was growing up (the chocolate is very, very good, too). One container makes about five pies or 35 servings of pudding. I can send you a catalog if you want, just let me know.
I used to make this pie using cream cheese and butterscotch instant pudding but lost my recipe. Do you have this recipe?
