Personal Notes:
Grandma said that this is a really good pie. She says that about all of her recipes:) Personally I have never beaten an egg white stiff or whipped real whipping cream, but I do believe Grandma and will try this some day. A hint from Grandma is to be SURE to clean the beaters between beating the egg whites and whip cream. She also said that is makes a lot of dirty dishes :)
