Here’s a traditional custard pie that’s been in our family for over 100 years. A fun layer of caramel jazzes up the creamy old-fashioned flavor. Great with whipped topping! —Roger Clapper, Delavan, Wisconsin

"I thought it was good. The night we tried it it was ok, but the flavors blended nicely after a day. I used coconut extract instead of the vanilla. Tasty Pie."

"My family loved this recipe. I actually added about a 1/4 cup of coconut to the milk mixture. Next time, I will add 1/2 cup coconut. Excellent with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. :-)"

"Sigh, I really hate to give this a one star review. I saw this recipe in my TOH magazine and it looked delicious. I made it exactly as the recipe states. It was disgusting. The "caramel" was very gritty and the "custard" was more like the consistency of a curdled omelet. I threw it out. But I was sure I did something wrong, so I made it again. This time I substituted fat free evaporated milk for the 2%. The custard was a much more pleasant consistency the second time around, but it had no taste. And the caramel, alas, still gritty."

"I had never had a custard pie so I don't have anything to compare this one to, but I did not like this. I threw it out."
