The first time I tried this recipe it turned out bland and did not set up. There is too much milk and not enough cornstarch or vanilla. Last night I made it again with 3 cups of milk, 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and 2 tablespoons of vanilla and it was much much better! Hope this helps! Greta F.

Very bland. Lacking good deep butterscotch color and flavor. But, most of all was not like my grandmother's!

This was a hit! I added some chopped almond slices with the butterscotch pieces as decoration on the top as well!
