    I just made this pie well put in fridge and see if it sets up and can get a nice slice after cooled. I did like the way it came together.

    This turned out to be one of my favorite recipes. I modify it slightly for my family's needs but it is truly great. I haven't had any problems with it. I make a meringue for it. I like a crispy pie crust so I always cook that first, then add my pudding, topped with meringue. I bake it on 350 until my peaks are at desired stage. Remove cool and put in fridge. I use it as vanilla cream too. Just don't add choc and a wee bit more vanilla. Yummy!!!
