  1. I did an experiment after reading so many "filling not setting" comments: I put it in the refridge for a couple of hours BEFORE pouring into the crust. Surprize! Mine was set so that it was the same thickness as the cream pie filling you buy at a store! I was so creamy and sweet! - Read more ...
  2. I made this pie for a 4th of July family reunion of 35 people. Instead of making the crust I got a ready made Oreo pie crust but followed the rest of the directions just like they are shown & it turned out great. I also made a second one & added butterscotch pudding to - Read more ...
  3. I have to agree with everyone! This pie never firmed up. I think if someone could figure out how to make this pie firmer it would be pretty good. I did taste the sagging pie and it wasn't bad but I too was embarrassed and dissappointed. I will admit it was very easy to prepare - Read more ...
  4. Make sure the sweetened condensed milk is made with whole milk. The reicpe does NOT work with lowfat or nonfat.
  5. Refrigerated overnight at nearly freezing temperature & still did not become firm. Extremely rich & sweet. Left out the sugar for the crust and it was still too sweet to enjoy.
  6. I love sweet stuff but this was extremely sweet. I made it for a birthday celebration and ended up throwing most of it away.
  7. There must be an ingredient missing in this recipe. It never did set up. Great flavor but had to serve it in a bowl.
  8. I made this pie refrigerated it for 7 hours and it still didn't get firm. I had to serve it like mushy ice cream and it was very embarressing for me. I think an ingrediant must be missing. It was almost too sweet too. Very disappointed.
  9. I agree with some of the other members' reviews. There's an ingredient missing in the recipe that will serve to bind the cake together. I also had to resort to freezing the cake just so that it would set. Also I recommend omitting the sugar since the cookie crust is sweet enough without it. Lastly - Read more ...
