Great tasting pie, first time I've ever made a cream pie. I found the filling a little runny, but still tasted delicious. Thanks for posting.

I have made this pie for our local bingo and have never had any trouble with it being running. Don't skimp on the cornstarch and you won't have any problem with this pie. People buy slices to take home they love it so much! Thanks for a great recipe.

I love this pie! I received a review that said it was runny. I never found it to be runny. But it is not like a pie you will eat in a restaurant. It will not be stiff and molded. Eat It Up Quick!
