This Pie Is is fail proof, my 11 and 12 year old Granddaughter's could make these. But thier arms would tire out. You have to have some stirring power to make these, but they are well worth it. When I make them I have to make some for the Festivties and then, I have to make extra's for my 3 childern to take home with them, so they won't fight over who's going to get to take the leftovers home...LOL
