Disney Park Recipe:

  • 4 egg yolks (room temperature)

  • ½ cup water

  • ½ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin

  • 1 cup sugar, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel

  • 4 egg whites (room temperature)

  • 1 ready-made 9-inch graham cracker pie crust

  • Ground nutmeg


  1. In a small bowl, beat together the egg yolks, water and the lemon juice. Beat until well combined. Set the bowl aside.

  2. In a double-boiler pan, mix together the gelatin, ½ cup of sugar and the salt. (You want the water to be boiling underneath, but not touching the upper part of the double boiler)

  3. Prepare a large bowl full of ice cubes.

  4. Place the egg mixture into the double boiler and stir quickly and constantly. You do not want the eggs to scramble so you need to keep stirring constantly. The gelatin will dissolve and the mixture will thicken.  Remove the top part and set aside.

  5. Stir in the grated lemon peel. Place the pot in the bowl of ice and keep stirring. This will stop the cooking process. You want to remove from the ice when the mixture becomes very thick. You want to be able to scoop some up with a spoon, drop it back down, and the mound stays a mound.

  6. In a large bowl, beat the egg whites until you have soft peaks. Slowly add the remaining ½ cup sugar. Do it two tablespoons at a time. Beat the egg whites well after each addition. Once all the sugar was added, beat until you have achieved stiff peaks.

  7. Gently fold the gelatin mixture into the egg whites. Fold until well combined.

  8. Place the filling inside the graham cracker piecrust.

  9. Sprinkle the nutmeg over the pie and chill for several hours.

Note: You serve this pie cold.
