This was terrible.  I think the cooking temperatures and times must have come from someone who had an oven that wasn't working properly.  I have a brand new oven, so I know mine is working perfectly. Cooking at 450 for the first half is much too high.  I tried 425 and ended up going only 15 minutes.  The crust and top was burning.  I also shortened the second half by 10 minutes and the pie was still too well done and I had to wrap the top of the crust with foil to stop it from burning.  I also agree the sugar measurement is off.  I was short on unsweetened chocolate, so I substituted semi-sweet, but I still used 2/3 of a cup of sugar and it was not really sweet enough.  I'm pretty good at adapting recipes, but this may be beyond saving.  My pie was way too well done from the crust to the custard.  I love Emeril, but for me, this was really not good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought this recipe was simple to do and the outcome was awesome! I made it the night before and refridgearated it overnight. The next day I brought to school and everyone loved it came out perfect:) item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this pie for a romantic dinner for New Years Eve 2007. I baked the pie the day before, it seemed easy enough so I gave it a shot. I've never had a pie come out like this. The pie came out looking very good, but when we took a slice, it was nearly not sweet enough, nothing like a custard and was indeed burnt at the top, even though I follow all the baking instructions, and baked it for the total 55 mins and the prebake of 15 for the shell. This really needs to be reviewed, if your going to try it, tweek it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
