I chose to close my eyes and go with one of my first taste memories: butterscotch. Often associated with grandparents for one reason or another, butterscotch is a rich and deliciously decadent flavor derived from butter and brown sugar (among other things.) Since butterscotch pudding, cakes or otherwise has always been a family favorite, I decided to go with that.
To compliment the smooth and sweet flavor of the brown goo, I chose to bake a fake amaretti, gluten free cookie crust. I found a wonderful brand that makes a fake nutty cookie (no nuts used in the factory) and is free of almost every other major allergen you can think of.
Since this challenge recognizes that some family favorites need to remain in the family, I am choosing not to post my filling recipe. It'll just have to be my little secret!
