Today is National Butterscotch Day!

Do you like it?

Here's a recipe (of course)
***********************************************************************************

Butterscotch Bread Pudding with Bourbon and Pecans Ingredients:

3/4 cup light brown sugar
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup bourbon whiskey
8 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 quart half-and-half
2 cups pecan pieces
8 cups ½ inch Country White bread or Sourdough Bread cubes
Powdered sugar, for dusting


Directions:

Preheat: oven to 375 degrees. Butter a 9x13"baking dish.

To make the butterscotch sauce, combine the brown sugar, butter, vanilla extract, and bourbon in a small saucepan over medium heat. Simmer the mixture, stirring until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is smooth in consistency. Cool ½ cup and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, half-and-half, and the cooled butterscotch sauce. Fold in pecans and bread, transfer to the prepared dish, and cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake 30 minutes, uncover, and then bake an additional 10 minutes. Gently shake the pan to make sure the pudding has set.

Serve with remaining butterscotch sauce, warmed, and powdered sugar.

Am sure for some it is yummy, but never have been a big fan of butterscotch. The candy is okay once in a while.
