"Totally not set, flavor out at the edge good, but did not cook. I would recommend upping the amount of egg yolks. I cooked for >15 minutes past cook time"

"Haven't eaten yet, but took way too long to cook and I don't know if it will be set enough to eat. I would try again but add more egg yolks to ensure custard forms, will review when we try it later tonight"

"This is my favorite kind of apple pie/tart. I use evaporated milk instead of the heavy cream. Delicious!"

"I have made this several times and it is delicious. To lighten it up a bit I have replaced the whip cream with fat free coffee cream and it has not lost it's great taste."
