I have an old recipe of my grandmothers that is perfect until I add the last amount of water INTO the butterscotch! Help!

Here's the list of ingredients:

-4Tsp Butter

-1 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar

-1 Can Evaporated Milk, Scalded

-3/4 Cup Water

-3Tbsp. Cornstarch

-2 Egg Yolk

-1Tsp. Vanilla

-3/4 Cup Water

I have never heard of putting water into a butterscotch pie recipe before as this would destroy the custard consistency. I am assuming the reason why she had 3/4 cup of water was because she was using a double boiler to make her custard over and that is the only thing that would need water if you were doing it this way. Other than that, completely disregard the water and you have yourself a perfect Butterscotch Pie recipe right there.
