Great pie only if you tweak the recipe. 1) You need to use an unbaked pie crust. 2) You need to use only 1 cup of sugar. 3) Suggest the addition of 1/2 tsp of cinnamon; 1 tsp nutmeg; If you like coconut, 1/2 cup of sweetend coconut will make a wonderful addition. 4) check pie for doneness after 40 min. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this and it came out cakey not like a custard. Cooked it for the full time so this may be why, but when I checked on it at 5 minute intervals after 35 mins in, it just looked raw. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this in a pinch as a last-minute dessert idea because I was looking for something easy, yet interesting. Aside from being possibly the easiest recipe to throw together, it was absolutely delicious! Everyone had to get a second slice. I took the others' suggestions and cut down on the sugar. I added 1 cup + 2 tablespoons. The whole 1.5 cups that the recipe calls for would have been too sweet. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just baked AND ate a slice of this pie. My eyes rolled back in my head, it's delicious! I did cut back on the sugar to one cup as some reviewers had suggested, but I think the next time I'll use 3/4 cup. I also added nutmeg and baked it in a pie shell. Mmmmmm, it's so good! A quick and easy recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
OMG!! Add a cup of coconut and it's like a custard and a macaroon mated and had a baby pie!! Took this to work and everyone loved it!! Like other bakers posted, I reduced the sugar to one cup and thought it was perfect. Any more sugar and it probably would have been "sticky sweet." The only other comment I have is that it baked up much faster than the stated 50 minutes. My pie had a lovely golden top and was completely set at about 35 minutes. I was glad I was watching it and not just trusting the oven timer, or my oven for that matter. TRY THIS PIE! :o item not reviewed by moderator and published
Had some buttermilk to use before it expired and found this recipe. Really easy and delicious. I used only 1 cup of sugar (may use 3/4 cup next time and added the 1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa as suggested below (may use more next time and it came out great. May try in a pie shell next time even though it just adds calories! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was so sweet it was inedible. I didn't read the 5 star reviews, assuming that meant those people all thought it was perfect as written, so I didn't notice everyone saying the sugar should be reduced. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is very good. I suspected that a pie crust was needed even though it didn't call for one. Used a deep dish frozen pie crust and it turned out delicious! We always add pecans for crunch. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I followed the suggestions of some of the others regarding reduced sugar & added some coconut & nutmeg. Also it should back about 35 mins. It was good & well liked. It does not create its own crust. So next time I will pour it in a crust. Though no one mentioned about the missing crust. item not reviewed by moderator and published
