Notes

  • If you concerned about using raw eggs, please use imitation eggs such as eggbeaters, or eggs that have been pasteurized, either work well. Pasteurized eggs are very safe for people who may have compromised immune systems.
  • You can substitute the pie crust for a graham cracker crust if you prefer that type of crust.
  • This recipe was adapted from a recipe in the Fort Star-Telegram.
