Crust: 5 – This is how crust should be! Light, flaky, not too thick.
Filling: 1 – Holy Raisins! The combination of raisins and tangy custard was not doing it for me. The meringue was good though but not enough to hide what was underneath.
Overall: 1 – I can’t get over the quantity of raisins and the strange flavor combination.
Crust: The crust was great- it was flakey and light.
Filling: It had a super sweet taste and the custard filling had a vinegar, metallic taste to me!! I didn’t like the soft custard with the gushy raisins.
Overall: Ok overall I would not feed this to Any animal!!
When I first saw the pie I was excited to try it. I like raisins and it was visually appealing. I took my first bite and immediately did not like it! Yuck!! I could hardly finish me bite. The meringue on top had a different look but it tasted just fine. I love meringue!!
Crust: 4 good
Filling: 2 started as a one but worked its way up to a two.
This is the gooey goodness I expect but wow, raisins! I like raisins but having so many was overpowering and super sweet. Excellent crunchy crust and meringue. The spices in it made me think of an oatmeal raisin cookie dropped into a gooey pie. Good idea but too cloying for me.
Crust: 5 beautiful crispy delicious
Filling 2 So sweet that it was almost more a sensation than a flavor. It overpowered every other aspect; wow, too sweet.
Crust: 5 Slightly sweet, with a flaky, crispy texture
Filling: 2 Where do I begin? The custard had an odd tangy flavor. Custard is usually my
favorite, but it gave me acid indigestion. There were too many raisins for my taste.
Overall: 2 Honestly, the best part of the pie was the crust.
There was this delightful brown sugar meringue was a nice change and I will use it again.
There is no modifying this pie enough to actually make it work. Sorry it is totally a thumbs down for me.
