I made this for my Mom on Mother's Day and I picked a good recipe for the occasion. It's nice and creamy and rich. Served with caramel and homemade whipped cream makes this very sinful and completely worth it. I did have issues making the caramel and I threw the first batch away. I thought it was boiling a little too hard, so I reduced the heat to low for a slower boil. What happened was the water evaporated and the sugar crystallized. On the second try, I kept it at a higher heat as the instructions say, and it came out perfect. The other issue I had was the baking time. My oven temperature is dead on, and I followed the baking time, but I had to add 15 minutes to the time to get it to set up like it was supposed to. I have a feeling that the increased bake time was because I used the tinfoil around my pan, just in case it leaked. I think this may have added an extra layer of insulation. I wouldn't do that again, I would just make sure my pan didn't leak. I had prebaked my crust, but I think this wasn't necessary and I wouldn't do that again. Overall a great recipe and I'm sure I will be making it again. It isn't that hard of a recipe if you don't over-think it like I did.
