Filling

  2. In a bowl, combine the gelatin with the lemon and lime juice. Let bloom for a few minutes. Melt in the microwave oven. Immediately add the gelatin to the cream cheese mixture and stir to blend.
  3. In a bowl, beat the egg whites with the remaining sugar until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the meringue into the cheese mixture. Pour the filling over the crust. Refrigerate for 4 hours.

Strawberry sauce
