Storage Instructions

  • Fridge: Place the pie in an airtight container or cover it tightly with plastic wrap. Store it in the refrigerator for up to 3–4 days.
  • Freezer: If you want to store it for a longer period, wrap it securely in plastic wrap and then in a layer of foil to prevent freezer burn. Store it in the freezer for up to 1–2 months. Before serving, thaw overnight in the refrigerator.

Variations and Add-ins

  • Chocolate Swirl: Swirl melted chocolate into the cheesecake batter before chilling for a delicious chocolatey twist.
  • Chocolate crust: You can use a chocolate pie crust instead of a graham cracker one for a different flavor and texture.
  • Nuts: Add chopped nuts like pecans or walnuts to the filling for little bites of crunchiness.
  • Caramel syrup: If you can’t find butterscotch syrup, you can always use caramel syrup instead.
  • Marshmallow Creme: Add a little marshmallow creme to the Cool Whip mixture for extra sweetness.
  • Whipped cream: Top the cheesecake with a dollop of stabilized whipped cream and extra Graham cracker crumbs.
  • More Fun Garnish: If you’re making this for a party, feel free to add a few gold sprinkles. You can also pick up some yellow fondant and cut out a lightning bolt shape to top the pie.

FAQs

Can this be made ahead of time?

Absolutely! You can make this pie several days in advance and store it in the fridge.

Can I make mini cheesecakes with this recipe?

Sure! Simply divide the crust and filling mixture among individual Graham cracker pie crusts and chill.

Does this taste like a butterbeer drink?

Not exactly but close. The drink is usually made with cream soda and a little less butterscotch flavor. It’s equally delicious, though.
