Instructions
For the crust:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Stir the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and salt together in a bowl to blend.
  3. Add the melted butter, and stir together quickly.
  4. Spoon into a 9-inch pie pan, and press evenly against the bottom and sides.
  5. Bake in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes.
  6. Allow it to cool completely at room temperature. You can even make it a day ahead.
Filling:
  1. Beat the egg whites until they are foamy. Add the cream of tartar and blend together.
  2. Add the sugar, and continue to beat until the mixture is stiff, and peaks form when you take out the whisk (or beater if you are using a mixer).
  3. Now fold in the lemon juice and zest.
  4. In a second bowl, beat the egg yolks until they are thick and lemon colored.
  5. Slowly fold the yolks into the egg white mixture.
  6. Beat the cream in a clean bowl until stiff peaks form.
  7. Fold the whipped cream gently into the lemon/egg mixture.
  8. Pour the mixture into the crust. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze overnight at least before serving.
  9. Top with fresh berries, lemon zest curls, or coconut.
