  • Total Time
    Prep: 40 min. + freezing
  • Makes
    8 servings (1 cup sauce)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen sweetened raspberries, thawed
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 4-1/2 cups reduced-fat vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 3 large egg whites, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Directions

  • In a small bowl, combine the cracker crumbs, brown sugar and butter. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a 9-in. pie plate; freeze until set.
  • Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine the cornstarch, water and lemon juice until smooth. Stir in raspberries and lemon zest. Cook, stirring occasionally, over medium heat until mixture just comes to a boil. Remove from the heat; transfer to a small bowl. Cool slightly; refrigerate until chilled.
  • Spread 1-1/2 cups ice cream into crust; cover and freeze for 1 hour. Drizzle with 1/2 cup raspberry sauce; freeze until set. Repeat layers, freezing after each layer. Top with remaining ice cream. Cover and freeze for 8 hours or overnight.
  • In a large heavy saucepan, combine egg whites and sugar. With a hand mixer, beat on low speed for 1 minute. Continue beating over low heat until egg mixture reaches 160°, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a bowl; beat until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved.
  • Immediately spread meringue over ice cream, sealing to edges of pie. Heat with a creme brulee torch or broil 8 in. from the heat for 3-5 minutes or until meringue is lightly browned. Serve immediately with remaining sauce.
