Hey Jessi, No problem on the meringue tips. I love good meringue... but sadly, I have never made a vanilla cream pie. So I don't think I can be much help... but... I have made other pies with a creamy filling that needs to set, I don't know for sure that this will work, but you might want to try some sweetened condensed milk in place of some of the cream and sugar.... it's so much thicker, and I would think it might lend itself to setting up nicer than thinner ingredients.

As for your filling, I find beating the yolk (also at room temperature) until they are light yellow and frothy helps to thicken the filling.

Hope that helps!
Ok yesI am so happy I found all of you! I will assure you I am going to be here for a long time! I am going to follow all the excellent advice right now and make tonight's pie! its a good thing my mom does not mind helping me eat the mistakes, she loves me for sure because she just gets a spoon to scoop it with and tells me its good! I will let everyone know how this turns out tomorrow..thanks to everyone so much
