I'd give it five stars for taste, but the directions are alarmingly vague. The only way I know of to get a meringue on top of a pie is to bake it on, but the recipe says nothing about this, and when I did the fudge part liquified underneath the meringue. I put it in the refrigerator hoping it would solidify, and the meringue detatched from the crust and began floating. After a day in the fridge, the filling is still pretty runny. The whole mess tastes great, but the presentation leaves something to be desired.
Filling was good, but not enough. Next time I will double the recipe for 1 pie.
Excellent recipe...I substituted 3 tbsp corn starch for the 6 tbsp flour. That was the only change I made...it came out perfect! Thank you Kimberly for sharing this recipe with us!
It was delicious, but it never got firm. I froze it and made the mistake of removing it a half hour before dessert and it was soft pudding by the time it was served. I made two pies, one with flour and the other with starch and had the same problem with both. The second one, I kept in the freezer until it was served, and it's wonderful. I need to add more flour or starch, or just continue to freeze it. It was a hit on Thanksgiving, despite the problem. I had used an oreo cookie crust, and we put servings in cups with whipped cream - it was no longer a pie, but it tasted great!
I did make a few changes 1. I used almost 4 TBS. Cornstarch instead of the flour 2. I omited the butter flavoring and used one and a half TBS. of real butter which also omitted the margarine. I added the butter and vanilla while it was cooking and I stired it consistantly until thickend.... Simply wonderful!!!! Thanks for sharing :D
This was easy and very good. My family enjoyed it, will make it again. Thanks Nancy
I didn't eat any, but my family did, and the overall opinion they gave me would be four stars. It did look delicious though. I used a graham cracker crust that made it twice as tempting.. :)
Good Pie! Taste like it has coconut in it but it does not. Also in the first one I made I did like the recipie and the second I made I cut the vanilla because my dad is weird and or corse he liked the one with out vanilla, it does give it a bitter sweet taste with out the vanilla. GOOD PIE!
