    Hi Ruth, I made this pie over the weekend. I included some step by step photos. It did set up so I don't know what happened there!?! I hope this does not deter you from trying the recipe again. It is a really easy and yummy custard recipe for any kind of fruit pies. I love using strawberries, raspberries, apricots, etc. Cheers!

    Hi Ruth, thanks for your comments. I am sorry to hear that the filling did not set up completely. I have used this recipe for many years without a problem. I wonder if there a humidity difference in our climates. Generally, I use extra large eggs for my baking. I will try repeating this recipe soon and post any modifications. Thanks again for visiting my recipe page. ~Daria

    This is SO yummy! I made it for company this weekend, and everyone loved it. It was fast and easy to prepare; it's so nice to only have the oven on long enough to bake the crust!

    My only problem was that the filling did not completely set up, even though I cooled it overnight, rather than just "until cool"; the finished pie filling sat in shell for about 8 hours before serving, and I immediately served the pie, out of the fridge.

    I used the last of my cornstarch for this recipe, but I don't think cornstarch can "go bad"?

    I would be interested to hear if others had this problem, or if anyone has ideas to resolve it. Any thoughts will be appreciated...I definitely want to make this recipe again!
