i have read multiple times that custard pies should be put in a prebaked (blind bake) crust - why not this one

I have a similar recipe for buttermilk that calls for 1 cup of sugar and is very sweet, at that, 2 cups of sugar for one pie is overkill.

Made this tonight for supper for my dad. It was so good! I added 3/4 cup of coconut and 1/2 cup raisins to it but followed the rest of recipe exactly. I will definitely be making this again!

Cookemountain I’m gonna do what you did-makes most sense to me Tatiana I completely agree with you as well-MIL brought a few pies to our TH celebration when we were first married (I hid the pecan pie cause I wanted it all for myself, I know don’t judge) ate the while thing 2 days later in 1 sitting and I have never wanted another pecan pie. Waaaaay too sweet but it took a dumb ode from me to realize that-but using half all ingreds shud do the trick for me

An absolute favorite pie of ours!!! Perfect to make two smaller pies or make one deep dish pie! I usually do the deep dish so that I have more filling in my pieces of pie!!!! Yumm!

I took everyone's remarks to heart, and since I didn't want two pies.... I cut the recipe in half. The odd egg I simply broke into a cup, wisked it and measured out half. The other half I kept for a later, unrelated, use. Fabulous pie! I took it to an important potluck and my pie was a big hit. I had a little cherry pie filling left over from another recipe. I spooned a little on my piece and it was completely delicious. Not a bad addition, but the pie as is is great. And I don't like pecan pies......

This pie was very good, both my kids and my husband loved it. I followed the recipe exact, except I added more pecans to mine. The recipe allowed for me to make two 9 in deep dish pies.
