    Followed recipe as-is and the pie didn't turn out so well. Way too thick and ended throwing it out :(

    This is one of those recipes that 6 stars should be invented for!! My kids were fighting over the last piece. Thanks Marie this will become a firm favourite in my house. I followed your recipe but was a little impatient waiting for the mixture to thicken in the double boiler so I tipped it into a saucepan and cooked it this way. It was quicker and I tasted great, so will make it this way again.
