Completely agree that the cream has to be whipped first. Excellent dessert that everyone loved. Making again this weekend, but doubling it!

Following other reviewers tips, I also whipped the cream separately, then folded all together. Very tasty dessert! I had huge problems getting them out of the pan though, even with spraying it first. Next time I will line the pan with parchment, so I can lift it out, then cut. The crust was so delicious, I made extra :) Note - if you use unsalted butter in your cooking/baking, be sure to add a pinch of salt to the crust mixture.

Like others have noted, I whipped the cream separately. This was a hit with my sweet loving group of guys.

I whipped the cream separately before adding the other ingredients like another reviewer mentioned. I think that is the only way this recipe will truly achieve its full potential.

Great recipe! I only had one problem...the cream has to be stiff peaks before the other ingredients are folded in. It wouldn't whip to stiff peaks after the condensed milk was added. I will do it that way next time. I froze it anyway and it still turned out okay. This is definitely a keeper. Thanks for sharing!
