Excellent recipes. Most recipes for brown sugar pie I've found before turn out a soupy mess. The lower heat and longer cooking time for this recipe works well. I usually have to cook it a little longer than an hour but just keep an eye on it.

I am re-reviewing this recipe. The first time I made it I ended up with a soupy mess, which was a month ago, and it's been bugging me ever since. I am happy to report that I am the one that made the mistake, because when made properly this pie is fantastic. I think I added too few eggs last time. This pie is rich and sweet and just wonderful and deserves five stars.
