"I found that I had to bake the pie on the 300o F. setting at 60 to 70 minutes to completely set! The pie baked at the 350o F. oven setting for 20 to 25 minutes. I added 1/8 tsp. salt to flour and cornmeal mixture. I used a knife to test filling for doneness-it should come out clean. All in all, these pies did come out well! delowenstein"
