"Not good. For a number of reasons: 1. requires that you use pre-made pie crusts. I don't like those so decided to use a cookbook to make my own from scratch. Used a recipe specifically designed for liquid ingredients. Still not good. Actually, awful. 2. Set up for two pies at a time. Seriously? You couldn't cut everything in half and create the recipe for one pie at a pie? 3. Instructions were limited. It tells you to put the streusel topping into the liquid custard. Guess what? The streusel topping just got absorbed into the pie before I could get it into the oven. 4. Baking time can't be right. It says to bake it for an hour at 350. After 35 minutes the top looked like an overdone pizza. I HAD to take it out early or it would have burned. It was maybe 1/4 done. Uncooked pudding pie I'll call it. Tasted okay. With sugar butter and vanilla everything tastes good. But this was easily the worst pie I've ever turned out. Will never make again. "
