Pumpkin Chiffon Pie – 3 eggs
1/4 cup cold water
1 tablespoon gelatin
2 cups pumpkin (or 1-15 oz. can)
1 cup sugar
3 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 eggs, separated
1/4 teaspoon Clabber Girl Baking Powder
1 pastry shell*
Soften the gelatin in the cold water; set aside. In the upper part of a double boiler, place the pumpkin, sugar, spice, milk and salt. Mix thoroughly and cook over hot water until hot. Add gelatin mixture and stir until dissolved. Beat egg yolks; slowly add some of the gelatin-pumpkin mixture to the beaten egg yolks. Return all to double boiler and continue cooking for approximately 5 minutes. Cool.
Mix Clabber Girl Baking Powder with egg whites and beat until stiff. When the gelatin-pumpkin mixture begins to congeal, fold in the stiffly beaten egg whites. Pour into a baked pastry pie shell and chill overnight in refrigerator. Serve with whipped cream, slightly sweetened and flavored with vanilla.
Makes 6 servings.
