I really enjoy this recipe - the custard is great, not too sweet - a traditional custard. I can't believe what passes for "custard" commercially these days! The only thing I would suggest is, I cannot get it to fit in a 9" pan, even with fluted crust top. I will be using a 10" pan from now on.

This has always been a favorite of mine. I sprinkled cinnamon on top before it went in the oven for my own taste. So easy to make and done before you know. Just yummy! I will be making this again soon. Thanks
