"I really loved the flavor, texture and simplicity of this recipe. However, the recipe only made enough filling to half fill a nine inch pie crust! It was pretty disappointing in that respect, so next time I will double the filling amount.

Also, I added lemon zest to it which was a nice counterpoint to how sweet it was."
