    Pam, this recipe looks great! If I make this with a homemade crust, how long do you think I should pre-bake the crust before pouring the filling in?

    I love a good custard pie! I’ve heard of this but never made it. Its different from Sugar cream pie in that it has eggs. If you haven’t had a good Indiana Sugar Cream pie, you need to try one. Its amazing what awesomeness comes from sugar, milk, and a little bit of flour!

    I’m trying this for Thanksgiving, along with a traditional pumpkin pie. I’m thinking it’s dark on top because the cinnamon floated up and settled there. Am I right?

    I just made it! However I cooked it for 50 minutes at 325 and it is really really liquid-y still. Does it set up once it cools or should it be completely set after you cook it?

      Rusanne,

      It should be set when you take it out. You might want to buy an oven thermometer to check your oven. Let me know if it eventually set up. Happy Thanksgiving!

    My Mom made a Bob Andy pie when I was a child. I have her recipe, but it does not have cinnamon in it. I just made two pies for Thanksgiving tomorrow.

    I made this pie for Christmas and it was AWESOME. I live in Australia and Aussie’s aren’t too familiar with cinnamon, thinking it a “hot” flavour. However, this pie went over FABULOUSLY. It was so easy and I loved how smooth it is. Another bonus is that it’s cold. It’s hot here in Australia at Christmas – a nice cool pie was very welcome!

    Thanks for this recipie! I will add it to my collection and bake it often. =)

    Bob Andy pie sounds good and similar to Indiana specialty, cream pie. Have you ever tried Pickle Pie…delicious, made in a motel/restaurant in Bicknell, Utah…

    I made this pie with half the sugar and subbing out cinnamon for nutmeg and it was exactly the home-cooking custard pie I’d been dreaming of. Yum city!
