Its been in the oven for an hour now and still hasn't set. Do i just take it out? it's definitely thickened and is bubbling-- and the top is turni... brown.

Hi! I was thinking of making this pie for Easter to take to my grandparents house. Would it be ok to make the day before and take for a two hour car ride, or should I maybe pipe the meringue on when I arrive? I was also thinking that maybe toasting the meringue a little bit under the broiler would help it set up more and not melt when transporting. Thoughts?

Hi Inga, I believe we started to address your question via Instagram, but since you used homemade mascarpone, you may need to add an additional egg to achieve the same level of setting.

Hi there Inga, I'm sorry you didn't get an answer to this in time. How did your pie turn out?

I took it out after an hour and fifteen minutes -- it did not set all the way but still tasted great! and the flowers turned out beautifully.

Glad it tasted (and looked!) great!
