Chill until mixture mounds slightly when dropped from a spoon. Beat egg whites until stiff, but not dry. Gradually add sugar and salt and beat until very stiff. Fold in gelatine mixture. Fold in whipped cream. Turn into pastry shell; chill until firm. If desired, garnish with additional whipped cream; sprinkle with nutmeg.
