Butterscotch Pie

Regulars readers know by now that I rarely throw anything away.  I have to try and make something tasty from left over food in my cupboards.  This week, I took five biscuits (2 chocolate digestives and 3 canella crisps) that I had left in the bottom of the barrel, beat them with a rolling pin until they were crumbs then mixed them with a tablespoon of melted butter.

Filling
2oz brown sugar
1oz plain flour
scant ½ pint milk
1 Egg yolk
Knob of Butter
½ tsp. vanilla essence

To decorate
Double cream,
Grated chocolate

Line the bottom of a cake tin with the mixture and put in the fridge while making the filling.

Place the sugar, flour and milk in a saucepan and heat, stirring until thick. Remove from the heat and let it cool for 2 or 3 minutes then stir in the egg yolk and cook for another minute, then add the butter and vanilla essence.
