Thank you. Anytime I am writing a recipe for someone, I try to write it in the manner you make it. The very first thing, is to set the oven on for preheating. Then grease and flour cake pans if applicalbe. Then list the ingredients. If some of the ingredients are to be done in two different steps, I leave a line between sets of ingredients. Ex. Sugar, butter; line space because you are going to cream the sugar and butter together. then continue on. I try to keep in mind that maybe someday it may be a newbie to cooking or baking that will be looking at the recipe.

Iím great at following a recipe, and my husband loves custard pie... I could have bought one at the local market, but thought for Fatherís Day Iíd make him one. You know, itís more from the heart... but I made it and it didnít set... I donít understand what I could have done wrong... I followed the recipe exactly what it Said.... what a disappointment... I felt horrible that it didnít work... because I then had nothing to give him for Fatherís Day... 325 is the highest I set the temp. All I can do is try again... ????

I hope you made it a point to read this whole thread. Excellent advice from those who know.

Definitely try again. And when you are surprised at being successful with it, you can present it to hubby and tell him "every day in this house is Father's Day."
