I love this pie. My mom made this pie for many years & I have made in many times. Only 1 time it didn't set up for me & I have no idea why. The only thing I can think of is that maybe my cornstarch was not fresh.
We loved this. Not usually fans of cream pies but this was simple and delicious. I bumped up the vanilla in the filling from 1/4 tsp to 1 Tbsp. Filling set fine, especially loved the meringue.
Fantastic flavor, but the pie did not set up, even after hours in the fridge. I've made fillings from scratch for years and this is the first time I haven't had one set. The filling was thick out of the pan into the crust and the meringue was fantastic, but the filling was sloshy once I pulled it from the oven after browning the top for a few minutes. I pulled out the parfait cups and served it that way.
