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 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
