Good flavor, but not suited for pie because it's a bit loose. Backed off the sugar and did 1 1/8 cup, plenty sweet as it is with the choco. chips. Everything else followed exactly --and nope, the Saran Wrap doesn't stick, cool, huh? Pie set for 24 hours in the fridge, but still came out loose (we even used whole milk). Consistency of thick pudding -- excellent tasting pudding, mind you, but not quite thick enough to truly be a great cream pie. We'd cut a slice, put it on a plate, and it'd would blob into a gooey puddle that looked like pudding as soon as your fork hit it. Big no no for a pie. I may try this again and add a little more corn starch to see if that firms things up. I'm not a fan of pudding pies - pudding is good, just not in a pie shell. If you dig instant pudding pies, are content with that sort of gooey consistency and are looking to get a bit fancier than ripping open a box and dumping some milk in, you may really dig this recipe. If you're not a pudding pie type, this probably won't be for you. If you're just looking for a great, rich pudding, this is a great recipe, sans the pie shell!
