READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Margaret3

Absolutely light as a feather. Folks will eat this one, no matter how stuffed they are! It stands very tall in the crust, due to the whipped egg whites.

This was a hit at Thanksgiving dinner! For some reason my egg whites didn' whip up like they probably should could have been operator error, since it was 12:30 am!!!! But it worked out great, beings I had a very long road trip to take with the pie and it probably wouldn't have made it otherwise. Very tasty. Thanks so much for a great recipe!
