Your palate will promptly fall in love with its first taste of Butterscotch Custard Pie.  Sultry, seductive and sinfully good, it really is a wholesome, simply and comforting pie.  With roots in England and France, this has become a wonderful staple of Southern cooking; a colonial creation.  Top with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkling of nutmeg.
