      Ms.Carrie bake the pies on 350 degress until its done, it takes a little for the custard to solidify, but it will keep your crust from prematurely over browning.Thanks for stopping by and have a Merry Xmas and Happy new year.

      This of course is my all time favorite pie! Isn't it interesting to note that to so many people here in the US - it is considered strange.

      I wrote a hub about 'Weird Pies" - it's in the link on your recipe page with a picture of a small sweet potato pie - and it is one of my most popular hubs!

      So it depends on where you live in the US - the pies you are familiar with. My second favorite is the bean pie - again unknown to many.

      Thanks for the recipe! That crust is equally important!
