- Slowly add egg beaters. Continue beating for another 3 to 4 minutes. Pour into the pie crust. Needs to set in fridge for at least 2 to 3 hours.
Beat the whipping cream and the powdered sugar and vanilla together on high speed till stiff peaks. Used to top pie with and can also add chocolate curls if you like.
- * Tip
To make your regular granulated sugar super fine, put it into your food processor and let it go on high for a few minutes. Will dissolve better in recipe and helps eliminate graininess.
