All I can say is... GROSS. I made one-quarter of this recipe in muffin tins so that I could test it out before the holidays. I made it exactly as described (but without a crust). The preparation was very easy. The final product, however, was very eggy-it was like eating a fluffy raisin-pecan omelet. The texture was not smooth and the pie had lots of air bubbles. There was barely a hint of sweetness to this-probably increasing the sugar substitute to one cup would do it.
