"Right now I am giving this 4 stars (instead of 5) because if the recipe is made exactly as written, there is too much filling for a 9" pan. Right now, some is spilling over in my oven- good thing I placed it on a cookie sheet before putting it in the oven. I will return later with a flavor rating after dinner. I do love all of the ingredients. Just need to see how good it is all together. I don't have a larger pie pan, so maybe next time I will decrease the ingredients slightly."
