To make bacon graham cracker crust

  3. Press mixture into a 9-inch (22 cm) pie plate and bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly toasted.

To make butterscotch filling

  1. In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, whisk together milk, heavy cream, dark brown sugar, flour and cornstarch. Continue whisking until thoroughly combined.
  2. Remove from heat and add 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of hot mixture to whisked egg yolks to temper. Add egg yolk mixture back to saucepan, whisking.
  3. Cook over medium-low heat for 10-12 minutes, whisking constantly to thicken.
  4. Remove from heat and whisk in vanilla, butter, and salt. When thoroughly combined, pour into pre-baked crust.
