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.
