      Wonderful egg custard pie! I was surprised that I didn't like this pie that much initially given the reviews and since I love egg custard. I tried it the night I made it after it was chilled in the refrigerator. The flavor was good, but the custard was too light, more flan-like. After it was refrigerated overnight, however, the custard became firmer and was wonderful. I will be replacing my regular egg custard pie recipe with this one. Recommend making a day ahead of time.

      My mother is 91 and facing end of life issues. When her doctor asked her if there was anything she wanted she said "custard pie." I made this recipe and she thought it was wonderful! (She can only ear pureed foods.) Thanks for sharing this recipe.

      This made a perfect pie !! The whole pie was gone in one sitting. I think I'll have to make another !! The trick to making a good custard ...DON'T over bake, take the pie out while it still jiggles in the middle. Residual heat will continue to cook the pie as it sits. I dusted my pie with some fresh grated nutmeg and cinnamon. A fantastic pie !!!
