2 cups boiling water

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 pint orange sherbet

Chill until partially set; fold in drained fruits. Turn into a 12 x 7 x 1″ (approximate) dish. Chill until almost firm. Meanwhile, in small saucepan, combine sugar and unflavored gelatin. Add reserved syrups and egg; cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cool thoroughly but do not allow to set. Whip crea; fold in cooked mixture. Spread over partially set gelatin. Top with additional mandarin oranges, if desired. Chill until firm. Makes 12 servings.
