(you wanted to typw `customize-save-variable' I guess)

Note that `customize-save-variable' is a function.  Above you pass the
value of a variable instead of a variable: When a function call is
interpreted all arguments are evaluated first.  So you need to quote the
variable name to pass the symbol itself to the function.

Apart from that I think you could use that function.  But do you also
want a prompt for a value?
