Gelatin, sugar and lemon juice are combined with beaten egg whites and chilled in a mold in this creamy, no-cook dessert.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 2 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
- 1/2 cup cold water
- 2 cups boiling water
- 1/3 cup lemon juice
- 1 3/4 cups white sugar
- 5 egg whites
Sprinkle gelatin over cold water and let rest until water is absorbed, 5 minutes.
In a bowl, combine gelatin, boiling water, lemon juice and sugar, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Chill in refrigerator, stirring occasionally, until mixture coats the back of a metal spoon.
Beat egg whites until stiff. Beat lemon mixture until frothy. Fold egg whites into lemon mixture until mixture holds together. Pour into greased molds and chill until set.
