    Key Lime Pie

    1 T. unflavored gelatin
    1 c. sugar (divided)
    ¼ t. salt
    4 eggs, separated
    ½ c. fresh Key Lime juice (or bottle??)
    ¼ c. water
    1 t. grated Key Lime peel
    1 cup whipping cream, whipped (I did this first and put in the frig)
    1 baked 9 – inch pie shell ( I used a prepared graham cracker pie shell - worked perfectly!)

    Green food coloring ( I didn’t use.. my pie was pale yellow - pie doesn't need to be green.. if you use coloring.. use it sparingly!!!)

    Mix gelatin, ½ cup sugar and salt in a saucepan.

    Beat eggs yolks, limejuice and water together

    Stir into gelatin mixture.

    Cook over med. Heat, stirring constantly until mixture comes to boil.

    Remove from heat; stir in grated peel. Add enough coloring for PALE green color.

    Chill, stirring occasionally until thickened.

    While it's chillin':

    Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Add remaining sugar (½ cup) gradually; beat until stiff peaks form.

    Fold (cooled) gelatin mixture into eggs whites; fold in whipped cream.

    Spoon to pastry shell;

    Chill until firm (I chilled it for 6 hours.. I covered it)

    Spread with additional whipped cream and sprinkle with additional grated lime peel on around the edge of pie.
