Mmm-mm! I expected to like this or I wouldn't have made it in the first place, but I have to say this exceeded my expectations. Fancy restaurants like to do old-fashioned, comfort food desserts (in addition to their Creme Brulee, Molten Lava Cake, Key Lime Pie, etc.) and trust me, you'd pay big bucks for this dessert in one of those restaurants and it wouldn't be half as good. The crust is excellent - so buttery and delicious, but be careful when you serve this as it has a tendency to want to stay behind in the pan! The filling is perfect -just right sweetness, creamy, and you'd never guess there was egg in it. The topping was excellent. pretty and perfectly crumbly, such an ideal streusel topping that I've made a note of it to reference for ANY recipe where I want a streusel, be it cakes, pies, crisps or muffins. It was a challenge scaling this down to 3-servings for Hubs and me and finding just the right dish to put it in, but I obviously chose well because between the two of us we cleaned it up - we couldn't help going back for more! Regrettably, I didn't make a half recipe, using an 8x8" dish for 6 servings, instead of scaling this to 3 servings - we could have enjoyed this a second time.
