Butterscotch Pecan Perfection Pie


1 9 inch deep-dish pie shell; unbaked
1 2/3 cups 
NESTLÉ® butterscotch morsels; divided
3/4 cup light corn syrup
3 large eggs; at room temperature
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups pecan halves; coarsely chopped
1 1/2 cups whipped cream (optional)

Preheat oven to 350º F.

Microwave directions continue, but melting is a double boiler also works.

Melt 1 1/3 cups morsels in medium, uncovered microwave-safe bowl on medium high  (70%) power for 1 minute; Stir. Morsels may retain some of their shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted.

Add corn syrup, eggs, flour and salt to melted morsels. Beat on medium until smooth. Stir in pecans. Pour pecan mixture into pie shell.

BAKE for 40 to 45 minutes or until knife inserted into center comes out with little bits of filling attached. If browning too quickly, cover with foil. Cool on wire rack for 2 hours. Refrigerate 1 hour or until serving

To garnish and serve:   Line  baking sheet with  parchment paper.  Place remaining morsels in heavy-duty plastic bag. Microwave on medium high (70%) power for 30 to 45 seconds; knead. Microwave at 10- to 15-second intervals, kneading until smooth. Cut tiny corner from bag. Drizzle 10 circular designs about 2 inches high and wide onto prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate for 5 to 10 minutes or until firm.

PLACE 10 dollops of whipped cream around edge of pie. Remove drizzle designs from refrigerator. With tip of knife, gently remove designs from wax paper and insert, standing up, into dollops. Serve immediately.

TIPS:  1/3 cup NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels can also be melted and made into drizzle designs instead of the Butterscotch Flavored Morsels.
