I recently tried a recipe that called for a cornmeal topping which baked in the oven. The instructions for preparing it were to cook it on the stovetop until thickened and then pour it over the "pie filling." It never firmed up in the oven. I followed the directions to the letter. Is it possible that the cornmeal was not fresh?
