Butterscotch Pudding Ingredients
2 1/4 cup whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
1 vanilla bean (split)
6 tablespoons butter
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
4 egg yolks
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 pinch salt

Butterscotch Pudding Preparation
In a medium-size pot, bring the milk, cream, and vanilla bean to a boil and remove from heat. 

In another medium-size pot, add the butter and brown sugar, and caramelize until golden brown. 

Whisk in the cream and milk mixture to the brown sugar/butter mixture, and blend until combined. 

In a medium-size mixing bowl, add the egg yolks, salt, and corn starch and blend, temper half of the sugar/cream mixture, then return all to the same pot. 

Cook over medium heat until thick (whisking constantly), remove from heat, discard the vanilla bean, spoon in to serving bowls, and chill.

Note: Butterscotch sauce is similar to caramel, except that you replace the white cane sugar with brown sugar
