    • 1 envelope (1/4 ounce) unflavored gelatin

    In saucepan, blend together 1/4 cup sugar, cornstarch, salt, coffee and gelatin. Stir in milk. Cook, stirring over moderate heat, until gelatin dissolves and mixture thickens.

Set aside to cool. Meanwhile, in a cold mixing bowl, beat cream until stiff. Fold beaten egg whites and cream together with raisin custard. Pile into baked pie shell; chill until firm. Garnish with additional whipped cream.
