Directions

1. Combine piecrust mix and 2 tablespoons sugar in a medium-size bowl; stir in the egg with a fork until well blended. Press dough into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch loose-bottomed flan pan or a 10-inch pie plate. Prick bottom of pastry with a fork.
2. Bake in hot oven (400°) 15 minutes, or until pastry is golden; cool completely on wire rack.
3. While pastry bakes: Combine the raspberry liqueur or white wine with the Melba Sauce in a small bowl. Tint a bright red with a few drops of red food coloring, if you wish. Cool sauce completely.
4. Drizzle several spoonfuls of the raspberry sauce onto the bottom of cooled pastry. Scoop out some of the ice cream with a large serving spoon and layer it over the sauce; drizzle more sauce over; continue layering sauce and ice cream, ending with ice cream. Press down slightly on all layers. Freeze while making meringue.
5. Beat egg whites with cream of tartar and salt until foamy-white and double in volume in medium-size bowl. Beat in the 1/2 cup of sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until meringue stands in firm peaks.
6. Frost ice cream completely with a thick coating of meringue, being sure to spread meringue onto pastry edge and making deep swirls and peaks. Freeze till serving time.
7. Bake in very hot oven (475°) 3 minutes, or until the meringue is touched with brown.
8. Remove pan side and bottom and slide the Alaska onto serving plate. Drizzle with the remaining sauce. Cut into wedges to serve.
