Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 6

1 Tablespoon(s) Unflavored gelatin, 1 env.
1/2 Cup(s) Sugar
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Salt
4 Egg yolks
1/2 Cup(s) Lime juice
1/4 Cup(s) Water
1 Teaspoon(s) Grated lime peel
Few drops green food color
4 Egg whites
1 Cup(s) Heavy cream, whipped
1 9-in baked pastry shell
Pistachio Nuts, Chopped
Lime slices for garnish
Heavy cream, whipped to top
Thoroughly mix gelatin, 1/2 cup sugar, and salt in saucepan. Beat
together egg yolks, lime juice, and water; stir into gelatin mixture.
Cook and stir over medium heat just till mixture comes to boiling.
Remove from heat; stir in grated peel. Add food coloring sparingly to
tint pale green. Chill, stirring occasionally, until the mixture
mounds slightly when dropped from a spoon. Beat egg whites till soft
peaks form; gradually add 1/2 c sugar, beating to stiff peaks. Fold
gelatin mixture into egg whites. Fold in whipped cream. Pile into
cooled baked pastry shell. Chill till firm. Spread with more whipped
cream; edge with grated lime peel. Sprinkle chopped pistachio nuts in
center. Garnish with thinly sliced lime placed in whipped cream mounds
around edge of pie. Source: Better Homes & Gardens Dessert Cookbook.
