This was a wonderful, custard pie. I didn't have buttermilk so I used regular milk that I let sit out for 30 minutes with a tablespoon of lemon. I didn't use the full amount of sugar. I probably used about 1 & 1/3 cup. I also used an extra tablespoon of baking mix to make certain it was nice and solid. I cooked it for 42 minutes and dusted with powered sugar and cinnamon. My husband wonders where I've been hiding this pie all our marriage. He was thrilled with it.

It's WAY too sweet and mine took over 50 minutes to set. That said, the fundamental idea is sound and if you cut the sugar (and add flavorings- I recommend coconut extract) this can be very nice.

I love this recipe, as does the family. I'll often shortcut this already shortcutted recipe though by substituting white cake mix for part of the sugar and all the baking mix (then reducing the sugar a smidge). Its great, it's easy, its FAST.

Really simple and easy to make. Won third place at dessert contest at work with this pie. I added a little bit of cinnamon and nutmeg to the mix. Will definetly make again.

This is very easy & very good! Quick to pop in oven when company drops in. Takes no time to put together. Good warm or chilled. It has a "custardy" consistency that will please all ages. Sweet! This is an old recipe thats been passed around & every generation likes it. I've been making this for years and will make again for years to come.

This was very easy and pretty good. Even though I preheated my oven, it took much longer than 30 minutes to make. At the 30 minute mark, it was almost soup, with a thin layer of the crust on top. It took me about 50 mins overal to make, and even now I'm not sure that it's done.

I had my doubts when looking at this recipe. I decided to make it because I had all the ingredients, and the prep took no time at all. This pie turned out to be DELISH! The recipe is so plain, and simple that it leaves a lot of opportunity open to add your own twist to it. I will definitely be making this again!
