"This pie is unique-it forms its own crust on top as it bakes, and it has a chewy cake-like consistency," says Helen Hassler of Reinholds, Pennsylvania. It's inexpensive, too-just 13 cents per slice!

"As written, the recipe is ok, but "nothing to write home about". There wasn't much flavor except for the raisins. Presentation is only fair. However, it is so easy that I'll try it again with variations of vanilla, dried cranberries, and/or cinnamon."

"Delicious and so easy to make!!! I added 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon which I think, made it even better!"

"This is a really nice idea . easy and quick when you don't have a lot of time. I did add a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla when I beat the egg and it adds another depth. Will also try it with snipped apricots and sweetened dried cranberries in place of the raisins. The "crust" is fantastic. Crunchy and crisp. A winner for a family dessert and with ice cream would be welcome for company."

"This is a very delicious and super easy recipe. It is really only for 4 servings though and not 8. Will certainly make it again soon."
