PIE CRUST:

    USING A PROCESSOR:

    • I am using 9 inch tart pan.
    • Place the flour, sugar, and salt in the bowl of a food processor, stand mixer, or in a medium mixing bowl.
    • Pulse twice and add in the butter. Pulse 6 times and add in the vanilla extract, whipping cream and the egg, process/mix/stir until the dough gathers itself into a ball and pulls away cleanly from the sides of the bowl. Transfer in a plastic.
    • Wrap the dough tightly in plastic wrap, and chill for 1 hour.
    • On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough to a thickness of about 1/8-inch.
    • Press the dough gently into the tart pan and using your finger, spread dough on the side of the pan. Use the plastic to smoothen the dough.

    NO PROCESSOR:

    • Place butter in a bowl and mix until smooth.
    • Add the sugar and mix. Add the vanilla and add in the flour, egg, and small amount of heavy cream - start with 1/2 tablespoon.
    • Continue mixing until mixture come together.
    • Transfer dough in a plastic and form into a round circle.
    • Refrigerate for 1 hour.

    SWEET WHIPPED CREAM:

    • Place cream cheese in an electric mixer bowl.
    • Attach in wire whipped attachment.
    • Mix cream cheese until smooth.
    • Add in the vanilla and the powdered sugarĀ  and whipped in high until no cram cheese lumps.
    • Add whipped cream by third and mix in each interval.
    • Mix until stiff peaks.
    • Put in the fridge until needed.
