Ingredients

1
box Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
1
package unflavored gelatin
1
cup sugar
1/2
cup fresh lime juice
1/4
cup water
4
pasteurized eggs, separated
1
teaspoon grated lime peel
2
drops green food color
1
cup whipping (heavy) cream
Sweetened whipped cream, if desired

Directions

  1. 1 Heat oven to 450°F. Make pie crust as directed on box for One-Crust Baked Shell using 9-inch glass pie pan. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  2. 2 Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, combine gelatin, 1/2 cup of the sugar, the lime juice, water and egg yolks. Cook over medium heat 6 to 7 minutes, stirring constantly, until mixture boils and thickens slightly. Remove from heat; stir in lime peel and food color. Pour mixture into large bowl. Refrigerate until mixture mounds slightly, about 45 minutes.
  3. 3 In large bowl, beat egg whites with electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining 1/2 cup sugar, beating until stiff peaks form. In small bowl, beat whipping cream until stiff peaks form.
  4. 4 Gently stir egg whites and whipped cream into cooled lime mixture. Spoon into cooled baked shell. Refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours. Serve topped with sweetened whipped cream. Store in refrigerator.
