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.Brown Butter Brown sugar caramel Butterscotch cinnamon filling
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. Take the pie crust to the oven for 20 minutes.
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.

What’s the cooking temp?
25 minutes baking in the oven and 20 minutes resting at least in the fridge. All the recipe can take you 1hr 20 minutes. This is counting the prep time, the cooking time and the resting time.
What is the temperature for baking the pie in the oven?
The pie must be baked for 25 minutes in 180ºC (350ºF)
I’m assuming the nutmeg is added to the egg mixture?
I forgot to write it. Thanks for letting me know. Yes, the nutmeg is added to the egg mixture with the other spices.
I got a question. First, I been looking for recipe like this. Its simple and it must taste awesome. But my question is. I don’t own a candy thermometer. So I am wondering, how long should I cook the brown sugar for. I am thinking 3-5 minutes?
Hi Amanda! You’re right it will take about 5- 7 minutes to get a translucent light brown caramel over medium heat. This of course will depend on your stove but you can check the photo above for reference. The caramel will be bubbling. Also I’ll let you this link with step by step pictures https://www.deliaonline.com/how-to-cook/sauces-and-dressings/how-to-make-caramel Good Luck with the recipe!!!!
This is the only internet recipe I’ve ever found that didn’t have a 2 hour long story at the beginning
Hi Cleo! Thanks for commenting. I always try to add only the needed information at the beginning. Thank you for noticing it!
also, are you supposed to pre-bake the crust since you poke holes in the bottom?
Yes Cleo, take the pie crust to the oven for 20 – 25 minutes until is golden as crispy.
I was wondering what brands you would prefer to use for the pie? I want to make sure I have the best results and wanted to know your recommendations.
Hi Annabelle! I live in Portugal and I’m not 100% sure if the brands that I use can be found in your country. In the US Trader Joe’s Pie Crust is a good brand. Thanks for commenting 🙂
This was a really good recipe, thanks so much for this. Do you think it would still be this solid with a bit more of the flavors? When I made it, it seemed a little bit underseasoned
Ive made this twice in the last couple weeks, doubling it the second time, and my family and I love it. I left out a tiny bit of the cinnamon the second time and substituted 1 tsp cardamom, but that’s just because I like cardamom 😁
When you say “yolk”, do you mean to only use the yellow part of the egg and not the egg white (to separate the egg white from the yolk)? Or do I use the whole egg? Thanks!
Hi kim! Yes, only the yellow part of the egg.
Can you double the recipe for the pie to give it a bit more body?
Of course! You can add more filling but make sure to bake a little longer and make the toothpick test to check if the pie is ready!
Hi, I don’t have pie crust package (we don’t have it in Greenland) so I’m going to make it from the start.
Do you have a recipe for that?
