No-Bake Pumpkin Chiffon Pie
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
3/4 C. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 C. cold milk
3 egg yolks
3 egg whites
1 C. cooked pumpkin

(You can use canned pumpkin, if you don’t cook your own pumpkin)

I usually grab a stoneware mug when dissolving gelatin in warm water. The stoneware keeps it warmer longer. Check out Lehman's Heritage Blue Stripe Stoneware at www.lehmans.com.

Make the Pie

Separate eggs into whites and yolks. Dissolve gelatin in water and set aside. Mix all remaining ingredients together in saucepan, then place saucepan over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring constantly. Add gelatin to warm pumpkin mixture, mix well, and remove from heat.

Cool in pan until partially set, but still warm enough to be pourable. Beat egg whites until stiff. Add 1/4 cup sugar and egg whites to pumpkin mixture, and fold gently until no white streaks are visible. Pour into baked 9-inch pie shell. Allow to set until firm. Top with whipped cream before serving.
