Recipe Tip: This pie is also delicious frozen! It can be made 2-3 days ahead of time if frozen and wrapped well.
- 1 (9-inch) graham cracker crumb crust
- 2 large egg whites
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons fresh grated lemon peel
- 1/4 cup lemon juice

Whisk in sugar.

- Fold together the egg whites and whipped cream as well as the fresh grated lemon peel and lemon juice until uniform.
- Fill the prepared graham cracker crust with the lemon cream mixture.
- Chill the pie 6-8 hours, or overnight, in the refrigerator before serving.
- For the sauce combine the Wild Maine Blueberry Jam, lemon juice and water in a small saucepan and heat until the consistency of syrup. Cool before serving over each piece of pie.
