Reviews for Root Beer Float Pie

"This dessert was tasty, but unfortunately didn't firm up too well. It you are going to eat it right away it's fine, but it's not a dessert that will be easy to transport to a party. It helps to freeze the pie, but it takes away a lot of the root beer flavor."
"My dad loves root beer so I made this pie for him for Father's Day. It was a huge hit! The root beer flavor is strong, but subtle enough that the pie was enjoyed by even those that don't love root beer."
"A friends two teenaged boys couldn't get enough. The only problem is that it doesn't set up well and remains too soft even though I cut back on the liquid quite a bit. Will have to figure out a way to solve the problem. Maybe Knox gelatin?"
"Delicious recipe! I decided to let mine set in the freezer as it was a very hot day. Worked perfectly! I think this will get rid of the problems with it being too soft and runny. I felt the balance of root beer and vanilla flavours was excellent. Will make again!!"
"This recipe is good but it needs a few tweaks. I did use regular rootbeer instead of diet but I don't believe it would have affected the lack of a strong rootbeer flavor. That is my only disappointment, it doesn't have a strong enough rootbeer flavor. Next time I might try leaving out the milk and using only rootbeer or adding a touch of rootbeer flavoring."
