This was my first experience baking a custard pie, so it was a learning process. To address some of the issues other negative reviewers had: before making this I researched and found that with custard pie, it's best to blind (pre) bake the crust, this prevents the sogginess. For a smoother custard, filling mixture should be blended just enough to combine the ingredients, but no more. I added the eggs second to last (just before the milk), after everything else had been well blended. I had two reasons I did this. Firstly,the butter was still warm from the melting process, so I wanted to make sure that it was cooled down enough that it would not begin to cook the egg prematurely. The second reason being that the egg would not be overly beaten. The texture turned out pretty good; mostly smooth overall. The flavor was okay. I did add a little more cinnamon than the recipe called for, but I still felt like it was kind of blah. I don't think I'll make this recipe again.
