Love this PieNovember 20, 2012 By amelia_2013
I have been looking for a good egg custard pie since my grandmother passed away in 1986, i finally found one. Smooth texture and tasted great.

Custard pie without fussNovember 08, 2011 By napito
I like the recipe because it proves you can make a nice custard pie without the fuss of stove top heating, stirring or a water bath. I give it 4 stars; the last star I keep for myself because I knew to pre-bake the crust to get it dry and firm to withstand the weeping. The disaster the first time was my fault: I forgot the baking sheet. When I did it over on a baking sheet it came out great. I added a half teaspoon of nutmeg to the mix because my family covers every desert with whipped cream.

soggy crustDecember 29, 2007 By moonplant
to prevent soggy crust, pre bake the crust like you would for cream pies, but remember to foil the crusts edge to prevent burning, this worked great on pumpkin and lemon merg. pies so I'm assuming it would work for custard also

UnhappyNovember 12, 2007 By NancieBrown
I made this recipe and baked it as directed. After 35 minutes the custard was still runny. You need to add 20 - 25 minutes on the baking time. Try this recipe and bake it as directed you will find I am correct. Otherwise the pie was good and we all thought it was okay, but I will stick with my old favorite as soon as I find what I did with it. That is why I used this recipe, I had misplaced my favorite and could not find it. I would make this pie again only I would change the baking time from experience. Also there could have been a more custardy flavor, the flavor was very, very mild.

Soggy crustOctober 02, 2007 By suemusico
I haven't made this particular recipe, but the ratio of ingredients is similar to my favourite English recipe. If the custard was weepy you probably overbaked it. Another remedy for soggy crust is to brush the unfilled piecrust with beaten egg white before baking. Hope this helps.

Egg Custard PieAugust 28, 2007 By Cynthia0319
This recipe was very easy to make. I added a little more sugar. It was very good except, for the fact that the custard weeped and caused the bottom of the crust to be wet. Personally, I don't think that egg custard belongs in a crust, but I enjoy it that way; soggy crust and all. However, I made it for someone else who was disappointed about the crust being soggy. Does anyone out there have any suggestions as to how to prevent the soggy crust? Thanks for the recipe. I will make it again.
