One of my all time favorite summer desserts is Lemon Chiffon Pie! I've had this recipe since I was first married and make it every summer using fresh lemons picked from my mom's lemon tree! I just made it again yesterday for Father's Day!
This pie is so light and fluffy! It's easy to make and is a perfect dessert for summer, especially with a summer BBQ!
Lemon Chiffon Pie
Mix 1 envelope unflavored gelatin with 1/2 cup sugar. Set aside.
In heavy sauce pan, beat 4 egg yolks, 1/3 cup lemon juice, 2/3 cup water. Heat in pan and slowly stir in gelatin mixture. Stir until boiling and remove from heat. Add 1 tsp. lemon zest (grated lemon peel). Chill until partially set.
Beat egg whites until stiff and gradually add 1/2 cup sugar.
Fold cool mixture into egg whites until blended. Put in baked pie crust.
Garnish with sweetened whipped cream and lemon zest!
