Beat egg yolks until thick and lemony. Combine egg yolks with 1 cup of the sugar, lemon rind, lemon juice and salt in a heavy saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 5 minutes or until mixture thickens. Remove from heat and add gelatin/water mixture. Stir until gelatin dissolves. Set aside, and allow to cool.
Have egg whites at room temperature. Beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add 1/2 cup sugar, a tablespoonful at a time, beating until soft peaks form. Carefully fold egg whites and whipped cream into cooled lemon mixture. Pile into cooled 9-inch crust. Chill until set. Makes one pie.
