  3. Transfer to a 9? deep-dish pie dish, and press into bottom and up sides to create a thick crust; set aside.
  4. Combine juice, milk, and egg yolks in a bowl; beat on medium-high speed of a hand mixer for 5 minutes.

  7. Whisk cream and vanilla in a bowl until stiff peaks form; spread evenly over pie and refrigerate until ready to serve.
