    I have a recipe from my deceased grandmother for Creme Pie (so I can't ask her)

    Ingredients:

    1/2 pint whipping creme
    1 pt 1/2 and 1/2
    1 c sugar
    shake of salt
    3 slightly rounded T flour
    1 t vanilla
    mix and pour into pie shell, sprinkle with nutmeg, bake 325 in glass pan 45-60 minutes.

    OK, did that for 75 minutes. Still liquid. I think there is something missing from the recipe to thicken like corn starch or eggs. Is anyone familiar with this recipe? Any assistance would be appreciated as I am trying to make for my father and uncle.

    from looking on the recipe it seems like u need eggs.
    Every pie slash tart needs some eggs to stabilize the filling
