Tuesdays with Dorie: Creamiest Lime Cream Meringue Pie

creamiest lime cream meringue pie

The brilliant baker Linda of Tender Crumb picked this cool and refreshing Lime Cream Meringue Pie for TWD this week.  Lots of lime and grated ginger made for a snappy combination…just right for a hot and muggy summer’s day.  I went with a crumb crust, and used waaaay less butter in my lime cream (I don’t know anymore just how much, but I didn’t measure anyway).  The lime cream was, well, creamy, and far better in taste and texture than some heavily cornstarched giggly-wiggly meringue pie fillings I’ve had in the past.  

For the recipe, see Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan, or read Tender Crumb.  Don’t forget to check out the TWD Blogroll!
