Undertale Butterscotch Cinnamon Pie
I looooove this video game. I’m not what you can call a gamer girl but I have a few games that I enjoyed until the last second.
This 18 of September “Undertale” was available for Nintendo switch and that was my opportunity to reconnect with this lovely and funny game.
Also, I remembered the famous Toriel’s butterscotch cinnamon pie that gives you a full healing in the game. And as always, I wanted to bring this recipe to the blog!
I’m super thrilled with the outcome of this recipe. The filling of this pie is A-MA-ZING! It is out of this world.
For those that don’t know, butterscotch is basically a candy made of brown butter and brown sugar.
To get “brown butter” you just need to melt the butter and let it cook over medium heat for a couple minutes. As soon as the butter starts to turning brown we need to take it out of the stove — butter burns fast — and there it is: brown butter.
This recipe has also a lot of fall flavors — cinnamon, brown sugar, and nutmeg —- so, even if you aren’t a fan of Undertale you still can enjoy a slice of pie with a cup of pumpkin coffee!
I hope you like this recipe and I see you in the next one!
The easiest recipe for Toriel's Butterscotch cinnamon pie!
- 1 package of pie crust
- 1 cup brown sugar divided
- 4 tbsp cornstarch
- 5 egg yolks
- 2 cup milk
- 1 cup heavy cream
- ¼ cup butter
- 2 tbsp water
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- ½ tsp nutmeg
- Whipped cream
Preheat the oven to 180ºC (350ºF)
Cover a pie form with the pie crust and make some tiny holes in the bottom using a fork.
In a big bowl mix the yolks, the cornstarch, the vanilla extract, the cinnamon, the nutmeg and ½ cup of brown sugar.
Melt the butter and cook over medium heat constantly stirring until the butter browns. This will take you less than a minute, so be careful and remove the butter from the stove as soon as it turns brown. Reserve for later.
I another bowl mix the milk and the heavy cream. Set aside.
In a saucepan pour the water and the rest of the sugar. Cook over medium heat until a caramel starts to form. If you have a candy thermometer heat up to 240ºF then take the heat to low and add slowly the brown butter. Then add slowly the milk with the heavy cream.
Add ¼ cup of the hot mix and slowly pour it to the egg mix to temperate it. Then pour the egg mixture into the milk mixture and cook over low heat for a couple minutes until the mix gets thick (see the picture above). Take out of the stove and let it rest for 10 minutes.
Pour the butterscotch and cinnamon over the pie crust and take it to the oven for 25 minutes.
Let it cool for 20 minutes then take it to the fridge for at least one hour. Decorate with whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon.
