This had great flavor, and was certainly easy to prepare, but I wish the directions were a bit clearer. I agree with Brenda... it's obvious that the flour needs to be measured by weight, not volume. I made the mistake of measuring by volume and ended up with a filling that was way too thin and just didn't set properly, even after an extra 10 minutes in the oven. Once I pick up a kitchen scale, I'll be happy to try this again. :)
