MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 31, 2014

"I came across this recipe years ago from one of my taste of home magazines and has become one of my main dessert recipes for almost all holidays , especially Easter. With so much to prepare for holiday meals, I forgot to make it one time and boy did my 11 year old grandson let me know about it! He was so looking forward to it. I made it the next day and took it to him."

"This is a dessert that my mom used to make every Thanksgiving. I had lost the recipe and now I have it again. It will be just like Mom is still here."

"I used a gluten free crust from a similar recipe so I could make the dessert gluten free. I have made this with chocolate or lemon instant pudding for years, but had not tried butterscotch before. It is really good with the butterscotch pudding! It got rave reviews at a church potluck!"

MY REVIEW

"My sister & I used to make this using chocolate pudding in place of the butterscotch. Never any leftovers! Also, if you're in a hurry & don't have time to make the crust, this works really well with two pre-made graham cracker crusts"
