Step Four

Once the cream cheese mixture is done, begin folding the whipping cream from step two into the mixture. Don’t beat it in. You want the cream to stay light and fluffy.

Get the pie crust you made out of the fridge and put your cream into the crust. Place it back into the fridge and allow it to set up for at least four hours.
