Butterscotch has a vintage-like presence in our dessert selections. It occasionally makes an appearance at the ice cream stand or perhaps takes the form of a hard candy (offered, no doubt, by the hands of a grandparent), but that is about it!
This week, I had the craving for something buttery and smooth. I sought a dessert that tasted like a Werther’s Original but with an ‘adult’ edge to it. What could fit the build better than a ‘spiked’ butterscotch tart? The result: a creamy toffee-tasting tart with a ‘hum’ of warm scotch.
