Here is a tasty and light pie recipe your family will love. This whips up so light and fluffy and is the perfect ending to a family meal. This has a really light meringue with a nice citrus flavor.
Place pie crust into an 9" pie pan. Crimp the edges to create a decorative effect. Dock (poke) the dough all over with a fork. Freeze for about 20 minutes.
In small bowl whisk together the yolks, lemon juice, orange juice and water until well combined.
In a sauce pan combine the gelatin, 1/2 cup of sugar, and a pinch of salt. Stir the citrus juice mixture into the gelatin mixture. Light the flame after combined. Cook over medium heat whisking constantly until mixture starts to boil or bubble at the edges.
Transfer to a bowl and stir in the lemon and orange zest. Chill in the refrigerator and stir every 5 minutes and do not let it set. This will take about 30-40 minutes or until it is the consistency of raw eggs.
Fold the chilled citrus-egg yolk mixture into the beaten whites and combine thoroughly.
