We had another bridal shower at our church this week and it was my turn to do dessert.
This recipe is a long time favorite of our family. It's probably the most requested dessert when we have get togethers.
Here's how you make it......
Crust: Mix as for pie crust 2 Tbsp sugar, 1 1/2 cubes butter, 1 1/2 Cups flour. Pat into the bottom of a 9X13 pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes.
In a double boiler cook until thick, 6 egg yolks, 3/4 Cup sugar, 1/4 Cup lemon juice. Add 1 package unflavored gelatin that has been soaked in 2/3 Cup water to the cooked mixture.
Beat 6 egg whites, 3/4 Cup sugar, 1/8 tsp salt until stiff.
When cooked mixture is slightly cool, fold in the stiff egg white mixture.
