To make this recipe for a sit-down, eat-with-a-fork occasion, double the filling ingredients, except use 3 eggs. Prepare one pie crust in an 11x1-inch tart pan or a 9-inch pie plate. Add the filling and bake about 30 minutes or until set. Let the tart stand for 20 minutes before cutting into wedges.
