    All the silky richness of the original recipe with a COOKED filling to guard against possible food poisoning associated with raw eggs.

      I've made this recipe over and over again. Each time it has gotten better and better. I'm posting again to share my new findings: I found that the recipe turns out even better if you don't over cook your mixture before adding the eggs. By not over cooking, you get a very silky texture.

      I made this last year and it was wonderful. I am going to make it every year at Holidays. Not too sweet. All I can say is if you made it and it turned out wrong then maybe you should stick to frozen pies. It was the easiest pie to make! Yum. I used regular pie crust and one with oreo crust. Both were well liked. :)

      Made this for my husband for Valentine's Day weekend. Unfortunately my pie wasn't so silky after having been refrigerated. I was looking for more of a mousse consistency and got a pretty hard, solid filling that I wasn't too thrilled about (the filling was beat until fluffy, as directed). While it still tasted good it wasn't what I was hoping for. I did swap the pie crust from a dough crust to a cookie crust and there were no complaints on that :). Good luck with the recipe!
