Custard Pie III

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
I am amazed at the people who reviewed this recipe and said that it did not taste like custard or that it was not creamy enough. Apparently these reviewers do not know what custard actually is. Real custard is not creamy. It is a firm, if not very firm, texture. They are thinking about Crème Brûlée, which really is not a true custard dish, but a cream dish. I am going to give this recipe 4 stars because the crust did turn out a tiny bit wet. In the future, I might consider pre-baking the crust a tiny bit to firm it up. For anyone reading these reviews, and who does NOT have a firm grasp on the difference between Custard and Crème Brûlée, and wants a cream-type pie, then I suggest you look elsewhere, because this is a Custard pie.
