RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE

DESSERT

PLUM CHIFFON PIE, American

Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons (2 envelopes) unfavored gelatin
  • 1/3 cup cold pear nectar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 ½ cups pitted, diced, fresh plums
  • 2 ½ cups whipped instant nonfat dry milk crystals
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
Preparation Instructions

A fresh plum chiffon pie is as easy on the waistline as it is for the cook to make. The filling for a 9-inch single crust graham, cracker shell is made by softening 2 tablespoons (2 envelopes) unfavored gelatin in 1/3 cup cold pear nectar. Heat 1 1/3 cups pear nectar with ½ cup sugar until sugar melts, pour over gelatin mixture, and stir until dissolved. Chill until syrupy. Stir in 1 ½ cups pitted, diced, fresh plums and fold in 2 ½ cups whipped instant nonfat dry milk crystals. Pour into shell and chill until set. The dry milk mixture is made by mixing ½ cup each of the crystals and ice water in a bowl. Whip about 3 or 4 minutes or until soft peaks form. Add 2 tablespoons lemon juice and continue beating another 3 or 4 minutes, or until stiff peaks form.
