   Beat egg whites until stiff. Combine sugar and mace; add 1 T at a
   time to egg whites, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla.
   Combine crushed crackers, baking powder and nuts. Fold into egg white
   mixture. Spoon into buttered 10 pie plate, pushing mixture to
   conform to shape of pie plate.. Bake at 350 deg F for 30 minutes.
   Cool. (This crust is excellent for chiffon or ice cream pie.)
   Combine crushed strawberries, sugar and lemon peel. Soften gelatin
   in cold water in pan. Heat gently to melt the gelatin. Add to crushed
   berry mixture. Chill until mixture begins to thicken. Spread half the
   mixture over the bottom of cooled crust. Add enough whole berries,
   stem end down and close together, to fill pie. Carefully spoon
   remaining crushed berry mixture around whole berries. Chill until
   firm. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
