Great!, but one key instruction is missing. What oven temperature did you use. I know oven temperatures can vary slightly, but having one would be a good start. I omitted the sugar and butter. I Used grade A Vermont maple syrup & a little organic honey. It is Healthier and sweeter than sugar so you less of it. I Used low fat milk, and added a little bit of turmeric.. helps to balance blood sugar and you can not taste it in the pie. It was delicious!
