Neselrode Pie

1 envelope unflavored gelatin
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
4 eggs, separated
2 tablespoons brandy or rum
3 tablespoons chopped seedless raisins
1/4 cup diced mixed candied fruit
1 baked 9-inch pastry shell or crumb crust
Sweetened whipped cream
Shaved semisweet chocolate

In top part of small double boiler mix gelatin, 1/4 cup sugar, and salt. Stir in milk. Add egg yolks and beat slightly to blend. Put over simmering water and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and mixture coats a metal spoon. Remove from heat and add brandy. Chill until thickened but not firm.

Beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add remaining 1/2 cup sugar, beating until stiff, but not dry. Fold this meringe, raisins, and diced fruit into gelatin mixture. Pile lightly into pastry shell and chill until firm.

Spread with whipped cream and decorate with a ring of shaved chocolate.
