    This was a very tasty & creamy, rich dessert. The pie filling was truly delicious and deserves 5 stars for flavor. However, I had difficulty getting this to firm up as a pie- I suspect that the short cooking time is the culprit here-after the full 12 minutes, it was still very, very thin - it did not even coat the back of my spoon. So, I cooked my filling an additional 5 minutes, until it just started to coat the spoon - I was tempted to cook it even longer, but I was afraid to overcook it. It did firm up more on cooling, but never enough to slice into pie wedges, even after chilling overnight. Next time, I would continue cooking longer - until it has thickened up more. But this was really quite tasty as a custard and I will make this again, but perhpas just make the filling and put it into a glass bowl.
