No Bake Millionaire Pie

This looks so good and is like a blast from the past. I have eaten this in my previous life and remember it well. It looks like the perfect dessert for an end-of-summer Labor Day affair, doesn't it? Especially if you love crushed pineapple and pecans and graham crackers. Yum. 

Ingredients for Millionaire Pie
Pie crust:
1 1/2 cups finely ground graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup white sugar
6 tablespoons butter, melted
Pie Filling:
1 cup powdered sugar
2 TBS salted butter, slightly softened
1/8 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup pasteurized egg product (like egg beaters)
1/2 cup cold heavy cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
8 oz can crushed pineapple, well drained
1/4 cup chopped pecans

Make crust:
Preheat oven to 375.
Mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter until well blended . Press mixture into an 8 or 9 inch pie plate.
Bake for 7 minutes. Let cool completely before filling.
Prepare Filling:
Cream 1 cup powdered sugar and 2 TBS butter on medium speed of electric mixer until fluffy. Add egg product and vanilla and continue beating on medium speed until light and fluffy. Spread into prepared pie crust and chill for a couple of hours until firm.
Place a metal mixing bowl and your mixer whisk attachment in your freezer for about 5 minutes.
Add heavy cream and 1/4 cup powdered sugar and beat on high speed until a stiff whipped cream is formed. Carefully fold in pecans and pineapple and spread over pie.
Chill until firm and serve.

This looks really yummy, I've been cutting calories (mostly sugar calories) so of course this looks extra good and tempting.
