PASTRY SHELL: Put chilled dry ingredients in food processor. Add chilled Crisco, process until resembles coarse meal.

Turn dough out onto saran, top with another piece of saran, and flatten into a disc. Wrap and refrigerate at least 30 minutes. Roll between two pieces of waxed paper to fit a 10" pie plate. Remove top layer of waxed paper and place pastry onto pie plate. Remove paper, flute edge, prick bottom with fork and bake at 450 degrees 10-12 minutes. Cool on a rack. FILLING: Soften gel in cold water 5 minutes. Heat chips and coffee in double boiler until melted, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, add gelatin, stir until dissolved. Beat egg yolks well. Add yolks, 1/4 C of the sugar, salt and vanilla to chocolate. Beat egg whites till foamy. Gradually add remaining 1/4 c sugar and beat till stiff. Fold into chocolate mixture, pile lightly into shell. Chill until firm, top with Whipped Cream. Freezes well and tastes great By KKBG35A RUTH BURKHAR
