Ideally, you should make it the day before. This step is important so don’t take any shortcuts!

If you aren’t in the mood for making your own whipped topping using heavy whipping cream, you can substitute for some pre-made whipped topping (aka. Cool Whip).

Using pre-made whipped topping will not drastically change the flavor of this wonderful Christmas pie.

You are probably wondering what this Christmas pie tastes like. Well the fluffy filling is similar to gelatine.

Not quite a mousse and not quite like a cheesecake. Very hard to describe. Very fluffy though. You will need to make it yourself to see what it’s really like.

    This candy cane pie is delicious. The chef was right saying to make sure to leave it in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours. I was surprised that it took that long to settle. But it was well worth the wait.
