Ingredients

3 cups fresh blackberries

⅔ cup water

1 (.25 ounce) package unflavored gelatin

¼ cup cold water

3 egg yolks, beaten

⅔ cup white sugar

3 egg whites

¼ teaspoon cream of tartar

⅓ cup white sugar

½ cup heavy whipping cream

¼ cup fresh blackberries

Mint sprigs (optional)

1 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crust

  5. In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Add cream of tartar. Add ⅓ cup sugar a little at a time, beating constantly until whites are stiff and glossy.
  6. In a separate mixing bowl, whip cream until stiff. Gently fold together with cooled blackberry mixture and meringue. Spoon mixture into graham cracker crust. Chill at least 2 hours before serving. Garnish with whole blackberries and mint sprigs.
