|1 1/3 cup / 325 ml||graham wafer crumbs|
|1/3 cup / 75 ml||butter, melted|
|4 cup / 1 L||raspberry, mango or other fruit flavoured gelato, sherbert or frozen yogurt|
|1/2 cup / 125 g||Naturegg Simply Egg Whites, well shaken|
|1/4 cup / 50 ml||granulated sugar|
Mix crumbs with melted butter; press evenly into bottom and sides of 9” (23 cm) pie plate. Bake at 350°F (180°C) 8-10 minutes until lightly browned. Cool.
Scoop gelato into cooled crust. Using the back of a spoon, smooth into a slightly domed mound. Freeze until firm.
Beat liquid egg whites for 1 minute using electric mixer. Gradually beat in sugar; beating until stiff peaks form. Spoon onto gelato; spreading evenly and sealing to edge of crust. Freeze at least 30 minutes. Place a baking sheet in freezer.
Place pie on chilled baking sheet. Bake at 450°F (230°C) 5-7 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately. Or tent with plastic wrap or a cake cover and freeze for up to 2 days.
To tent plastic wrap over pie, place toothpicks in meringue before covering with plastic wrap to prevent marring meringue topping.

When whipping eggs, start with a low speed and then gradually work up to the whip setting on the mixer. The lower speed stretches the protein molecules and makes the mixture more readily accept air.
