Recipe by Christopher S.
"This pie was named by the students of Miss Schneider. Each spring, she brought her class several of these pies to enjoy at recess. Over the forty years Miss Schneider taught, this luscious confection became known as 'school teacher pie'. (I just call it Creme Brulee Pie because that's what it is!)"

I'm really bad at following a recipe verbatim.
Things I changed:
1) Used a pre-made crust and skipped steps 1-3.
2) Added 1/3 cup brown sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla to the custard as it was cooling. I did this to get more of a vanilla custard pie instead of a plain custard pie.
Also, I definitely didn't need to let the pie sit in the refrigerator for more than 2 1/2 hours before doing the caramelized sugar on top.
And although the broiler technique is great for caramelizing the sugar on top and giving it that creme brulee look, it also burns any exposed crust. I had to cut off the excess crust. That wasn't too big of a deal though, took less than 2 minutes.
Finally, the recipe says cool for 5 minutes before serving. No. Nonono. Refrigerate for at least 25 minutes before serving.
Despite my critiques, overall this is a really delicious pie, and definitely something I'll make again.
