Delicious! The recipe is a little confusing. The 1 1/2 c. sugar goes in the custard and the 1 T. sugar goes in the whipping cream.

My favorite recipe by far my family loves it whenever I make them this pie it's always requested around the holidays :)

I can't tell you how much I love this recipe. The first time I made it I messed up on the custard I didn't even know what custard was at the time so it was a little liquidy. After I made it a second and third time I pretty much perfected it. I've given it to neighbors friends and family and every single one of them gave me amazing reviews even my vegetarian friends are obsessed about it. Thank you for such a great recipe I'll tell you what it is way better warm to my husband doesn't like pies or sweets at all and he loves it

Good recipe but instructions are very confusing - I accidentally mixed up the sugar amounts in the custard/topping because it didn't say which was for which :( I had to make the pie twice to get it right but it was a hit!
