2. Pie Filling: Beat egg yolks until light; add sugar. Beat until thick and lemon-coloured. Soak gelatine in water until softened, then put over a low flame and bring to boil. Pour over the sugar and egg mixture stirring briskly. Whip cream until stiff. Fold carefully into the egg mixture and flavour with rum. Pour the mixture into pie shell and refrigerate to set.
