Butterscotch Cinnamon Pie Day

Every September 15th is observed as Butterscotch Cinnamon Pie Day. This holiday celebrates a pie that was made famous by the popular 2015 video game “Undertale,” but is actually a dessert that can be traced back much further than that to the 19th century.

Regardless of whether the game has brought people to this pie or whether family tradition has, the one thing that’s for certain is that this is going to be a delicious treat to enjoy on this holiday.

A quick search of the internet will reveal several different butterscotch cinnamon pie recipes, and some people may even have a recipe in their family’s cookbooks. All of these recipes are just waiting to be transformed into something wonderful on this holiday.

The History of Butterscotch Cinnamon Pie Day

Butterscotch cinnamon pie is believed to have been created in Scotland during the 19th century. The original recipe for this pie involved boiling butter and brown sugar together until they created a caramel-like substance.

Cinnamon, an ingredient that has been used for hundreds of years, was then added to the mixture. We can’t say that butterscotch cinnamon pie was a very popular dessert. On the contrary, it was considered to be somewhat of an old-fashioned dessert near the end of the 20th century.

However, that concept would change when the pixelated version of this pie would end up in the 2015 game Undertale. Now it appears that this pie has started to become popular again. And why wouldn’t it be? After all, it’s a delightful and comforting combination of cinnamon and butterscotch with a flaky pie crust. Absolutely delicious.
