RECIPE NOTES

You can use a traditional pie crust (this is my all butter pie crust) for this recipe if you'd like, but I love it with a homemade graham cracker pie crust
Make sure you mix the ingredients for the full length of time noted! 
Use room temperature eggs (will incorporate with the other ingredients more readily). 
Use clean, pasteurized eggs.
Note: As a word of caution, yes, this French Silk Pie contains raw eggs. Raw eggs always pose the risk for salmonella. With that being said, make sure you use fresh, refrigerated, clean, high grade and pasteurized eggs to reduce the risk. People who are at higher risk for getting salmonella are pregnant people, older folks, people with a compromised immune system, and young children. But with that said, I've never had an issue with this.
