Melon Alaska Pie

1 package (11 ounces) pie crust mix
1 quart vanilla or peach ice cream, slightly
4 egg whites
¥4 teaspoon cream of tartar
¥2 cup sugar
2 cups honeydew and/or cantaloupe balls*

Bake 9-inch pie shell as directed on pie crust mix package.
Cool. Pack ice cream carefully into pie shell. Freeze until
firm, at least 8 hours.

Ten minutes before serving, heat oven to 500.. Beat egg
whites and cream of tartar until foamy. Beat in sugar
gradually until meringue is stiff and glossy. Arrange fruit
on ice cream; top with meringue, sealing to edge of crust.
Bake until meringue is light brown, about 3 minutes.

* 2 cups sliced nectarines, peaches, strawberries or blue-
berries can be substituted for the honeydew and can-
taloupe balls.

Here's a tongue twister that makes a lot of sense:
When paring apples and pears, pare as thinly as
possible. (You don't want to cut away valuable

To loosen the skin of ripe peaches or apricots, first
dip them in boiling water for 20 to 30 seconds, then
into cold water-the skin will pucker and pull off

Want to avoid a brown-out? You can prevent fruit
from discoloring after it has been cut by dipping it
in lemon, lime, orange or pineapple Juice.
