  1. Combine graham cracker crumbs with softened butter and sugar in a bowl thoroughly using the back of a fork. Firmly pat the mixture onto the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie pan.
  2. Soften gelatin in water for 5 minutes. Combine with 1/3 cup sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, and salt in the top of a double boiler. Beat egg yolks lightly and stir into the lemon mixture. Cook over boiling water, stirring constantly, until thickened, 5 to 8 minutes. Let cool, 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Beat cream in a chilled glass or metal bowl with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Fold into the lemon filling.
  4. Beat egg whites with remaining sugar until stiff. Fold into the lemon filling. Pour into the prepared crust and refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours before serving.
