My husband makes this pie. I do not know where he came across the recipe but it is a winner! The filling will rise quite high baking so flute the crust high.

How to Make Cheese Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Beat the cheese until smooth. Add in the egg yolks and beat well.

  3. Beat in cream and vanilla.
  4. Beat the egg whites until they are stiff (be sure the beaters are clean for this step) Gently fold the egg whites into the cheese mixture incorporating well but not over mixing (you'll deflate the whites)
