Step 1: Assemble the Ingredients

- 30oz. can of pumpking pie mix
- premade graham cracker pie crust
- 1 tblsp. lime juice
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 can of whipped cream

Step 2: Separate the Egg Whites

Separate the whites from the two eggs. I usually do this by carefully swirling the yolk around in my hand and letting the egg white seep between my fingers.

Step 3: Combine the Ingredients

Now combine your four main ingredients (pie filling, egg whites, sugar and lime juice) in your mixing bowl and beat with the whisk attachment for about ten minutes to get the egg whites whipped up a bit.

Step 4: Fold in Whipped Cream

Gently fold in about a cup of whipped cream.

Step 5: Fill the Crust

Now pour the pie filling mixture into the graham cracker crust. Cover the crust with the plastic lid and place the pie in your freezer overnight.

Step 6: Serve the Pie

To serve the pie, cut into individual slices and garnish with whipped topping and chocolate sprinkles.
