Step 4
STIR!!! I stirred mine continuously for about 15 minutes. You will want to cook it until it thickens & then beat it smooth. It takes a little while for the mixture to thicken up, just keep whisking (about 10-15 min).

Pour into your pre-baked pie shell & put in the fridge to chill. I left mine in for about an hour and 1/2.

Serve diner style! Chilled with a whipped cream topping! ;)

Until next time!
