All I can say is Oh My God THAT IS SOME GOOD STUFF. I mixed all ingredients in my ninja kitchen blender and it made it as smooth as butter. This recipe made 2 pies. Never been so glad for leftovers. This is staying in my personal recipe book FOREVER!!!

Not knowing when to add topping or how long to bake made this recipe difficult. Topping was powdery, but overall pretty good. I will make the topping wetter next time by adding more butter.

I made this on Thanksgiving and it was a hit! I made it the night before and just reheated it on Thanksgiving day.

I had the same question, I am planning to make this on Thanksgiving and after looking at it I would think it has to go back in the oven especially since it has eggs in it. I will probably put it back in the oven until the topping browns. I'll post again after I make it - hopefully a picture will accompany the post.

The recipe seems to end abruptly. Does it get baked again after the topping gets put on? Thanks.
