Preheat over to 400. In a large bowl combine cookie crumbs, melted butter sugar and salt. Press into a 9 inch pie pan. Bake for 10 minutes and cool.

Make the filling:

In a small bowl sprinkle unflavored gelatin over cup Cointreau to soften for 5 minutes. Set the mixture over a bowl of hot water and stir till gelatin is dissolved.

In a large bowl beat 2 egg whites until they hold soft peaks. Beat in remaining cup sugar 2 tablespoons at a time, beating the meringue until it holds stiff peaks. Fold this into pumpkin mixture and put into crust. Lightly cover and chill 6 hours. Can be easily doubled!!
