      My Aunt Karen has been making this recipe for years. I finally asked her for the recipe and was surprised at how easy it is to make. You absolutely MUST continue beating the butter until the sugar granules disappear into it (5 minutes), and then you must beat each egg in seperately (approx 5 minutes each.) This makes it time consuming, and practically impossible to whip by hand. In fact, a Kitchen Aid type mixer will really work the best, but I have also done it with an electric hand mixer in a large bowl. Other than the time involved, it is very simple and completely delicious. My husband says it is "the height of decadence" and everyone I serve it to asks me for the recipe. Try it!

      I ate the whole thing in 12 hours. A mistake. Don't do that. This pie requires that someone ELSE serves you a small slice and hides the rest.

      Make sure you beat the eggs at least 8 minutes each time one is put into the bowl...I use the whipping paddle on my KitchenAid, instead of the regular one...made the filling higher and creamier...this was made for an event tonight and so many people asked about it...Great recipe! Served it in an Oreo cookie crust...with whipped cream on top. People wanted to take it home with them on a plate...after eating a piece, they wanted more!
