Butterscotch is a type of confectionery made with butter and brown sugar boiled to the soft crack stage. It is similar to toffee, but for toffee the sugar is boiled to the hard crack stage. Butterscotch can be consumed as a candy or used in culinary as a flavor for cookies, puddings, and other desserts.
To celebrate the National Butterscotch Pudding Day, try your hand at cooking this delicious dessert. Here is a recipe you can use. In a saucepan, melt 4 tbs butter. Add 1 cup brown sugar and 3/4 tsp salt. Stir until sugar is well-moistened and remove from heat.
In a bowl, whisk together 3 tbs cornstarch with 1/4 cup milk until smooth. Whisk in 2 eggs. Gradually pour 2 1/4 cups milk into butter with sugar, whisking constantly. Then whisk in cornstarch mixture.
Return saucepan to the heat and bring to boil, whisking. Then reduce the heat and let the mixture simmer, whisking constantly, until thickened. Remove from heat. Stir in 2 tsp whiskey and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Pour into custard cups or serving glasses and put in the fridge for 4 hours.
Some butterscotch pudding recipes do not require making butterscotch yourself; ready-made butterscotch chips can be used for making the pudding.Remind me with Google Calendar
