1/2 cup melted butter or margarine

1 envelope gelatin
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt

4 egg yolks
1/2 cup lime juice
1/4 cup water

1 teaspoon grated lime peel

4 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar

1 cup heavy cream, whipped

Combine crumbs, rind, sugar and butter. Press into bottom and
sides of 9-inch pie plate. Bake at 375 degrees fahrenheit for 8
minutes. Cool

Thoroughly mix in saucepan gelatin, sugar and salt. Beat together
yolks, lime juice and water. Stir into gelatin mixture. Cook over
medium heat, stirring, just until mixture comes to a boil. Remove
