This recipe definitely took longer to cook than advertised.The first time I tried it exactly as mentioned above, and I think there really was just too much cream. I tried it again with an extra egg and only 1 1/2 cups of half and half and it turned out much better (and cooked much faster). I tried it again using 1 1/2 cups condensed milk (instead of half and half) to try to get a silkier consistency, almost like a Key lime pie. It turned out really well, but now it is a little too sweet. I will try it again with the condensed milk, but I will cut down the sugar (and perhaps use a graham cracker crust)

This was truely the most aweful recipe. It didn't work from the very beginning. First of all, there was too much pie filling left over. Then, the pie didn't even cook in the amount of time that the recipe says. I had to cook it for about 2 hours! I am pretty sure that this recipe calls for way too much half and half. I will never make this again.

My husband loved this pie. He grew up eating persimmon cookies every fall made with freshly picked persimmons. This was a nice change. He wouldn't let me give away any of the pie.
