   *A Note from Suzy: As we do not use RAW/UNcooked eggs
   here in the northeastern United States due to
   salmonella bacteria I have substituted a product
   called “Just Whites”, it works just as well if not
   better than egg whites.
   
   CRUST: Combine coconut, flour and melted margarine.
   Press on bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Bake at
   350 degrees F. for 12-15 minutes until lightly
   browned. Remove from oven and set aside.
   
   FILLING: Soften gelatin in 1/4 c. cold water. Set
   aside. In a saucepan combine egg yolks, 3.4 c. water
   3.4 c. sugar. Stir over medium heat for 5 minutes.
   Remove from heat and add softened gelatin and stir
   until dissolved.
   
   Beat cream cheese at low speed while gradually adding
   gelatin/ egg mixture until well blended. Stir in lime
   juice, grated lime, few drop green coloring. Fold in
   whipped cream and stiffly beaten egg whites.
   
   Pour filling over cooled crust and chill until firm.
   
   Remove from springform and garnish with grated lime
   rind. In summer decorate serving plate with fresh mint
   leaves if desired.
