    Is the pie crust baked before or after the filling?

    Very good! I made a cookie crust for mine with coconut macaroon cookies. I think pecan shortbread cookies would be great too. My filling took a little longer to set, so to allow enough time for this.

    I made this pie for Thanksgiving. My family loved it. It came out perfect. I doubled the recipe because I used a 10 in. pie crust. The taste was not too strong and very smooth. The filling did not get watery. Everyone left with the recipe.
