A Favorite Summer Dessert!

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!

Oh my goodness. Fresh lemons from a lemon tree! I'm seriously jealous. That recipe looks absolutely delicious. I'm saving this to come back to. My girls love lemon bars. I'm guessing they will love this too.

Looks soooo good ... thanks for sharing the recipe. I grew up surrounded by fresh lemons on lemon trees but (sadly) such things are non-existent here in WV! Lemon is my fave when it comes to pies ... thanks again! :)

I just found your blog here and am your newest follower. Your pie looks delicious and I MUST try it. Lemon is my favorite.
I also noticed you adopted a little girl from China. My daughter and son-in-law are waiting for a little girl from China also. They are living there at the moment. We are so excited to finally meet our newest granddaughter.
