I'd give it five stars for taste, but the directions are alarmingly vague. The only way I know of to get a meringue on top of a pie is to bake it on, but the recipe says nothing about this, and when I did the fudge part liquified underneath the meringue. I put it in the refrigerator hoping it would solidify, and the meringue detatched from the crust and began floating. After a day in the fridge, the filling is still pretty runny. The whole mess tastes great, but the presentation leaves something to be desired.


Excellent recipe...I substituted 3 tbsp corn starch for the 6 tbsp flour. That was the only change I came out perfect! Thank you Kimberly for sharing this recipe with us!

It was delicious, but it never got firm. I froze it and made the mistake of removing it a half hour before dessert and it was soft pudding by the time it was served. I made two pies, one with flour and the other with starch and had the same problem with both. The second one, I kept in the freezer until it was served, and it's wonderful. I need to add more flour or starch, or just continue to freeze it. It was a hit on Thanksgiving, despite the problem. I had used an oreo cookie crust, and we put servings in cups with whipped cream - it was no longer a pie, but it tasted great!
