This recipe is delicious. My husband, not a 'sweets' kind of guy, will nearly devour this thing in one sitting. I've now made it several times and tweak it accordingly.
Firstly, I use a graham cracker crust. I make my own (2 c graham cracker crumbs, 1 TB butter, 1 TB sugar, dash of cinnamon, bake at 350 for 8 minutes), but you can also buy one. I've gotten fancy and started lining the crust with chocolate chips before pouring the batter.
I also make it with 6 eggs. Be sure to WHIP WHIP WHIP between each egg. I cannot stress the importance of beating thoroughly - it's what makes the recipe.
Finally, I'll use a homemade whipped cream - I think the difference is well worth the extra effort. Using the whip attachment, beat 1 1/2 c heavy whipping cream on medium-high. Add 1/4 c powdered sugar and 2 teaspoons vanilla about 30-45 seconds into whipping. Whip for several minutes until it's thick and forms peaks, but do not overwhip or else you'll end up with a hunk of sweetened butter.
