MY MOM'S BUTTERSCOTCH PIE

This recipe is from my late mother.

1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 cup water
3 eggs, separated
4 tbsp flour
1 cup milk
4 tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1 baked 9-inch pie shell

In a saucepan add the water to the brown sugar; bring to a boil to make a syrup.

In a bowl, add the egg yolks and mix to break up; stir in the flour and add milk gradually, stirring to prevent lumping. Add the egg mixture to the syrup and bring to a boil, stirring frequently until thickened. Remove from the heat and add butter, vanilla, and salt. Pour into the baked pie shell. Top with your favorite meringue or whipped cream, if desired.
