TWD: Creamiest Lime Cream Meringue Pie

I have sooooo much work to do today that this post is going to be short and sweet. I was impatient with my cream, so it didn’t set up right and I burned my meringue. LOL
How’s that for short?
I’m sure it was a lovely pie, but my crust wasn’t done all the way and because the recipe specified a number of limes (for the zest) instead of an actual measurement (teaspoons, tablespoons, etc), I think mine ended up with too much zest. It was too tart for me. Oh well, down the Insinkerator it went, can’t win them all!
Isn’t my new deep dish pie plate pretty though? ;) If you would like to see the recipe you can visit this week’s host, Linda of Tender Crumb.

    For starters, your pie LOOKS good. And I do LOVE that pie plate. LOVE IT. Sorry you had to dump the pie. I'm glad I went with the 1/2 cup lime juice, that and I'm glad I made ice cream out of my lime cream! ;)

    OH! What a bummer – too much lime, I guess, would be a bad thing. Sorry to hear that it didn't work out for you.

    Hi Amanda!

    Strangely enough, mine wasn't tart enough! I think it may have to do with the fact that I made cupcakes instead of an actual pie! ;)

    Yours look great and I wouldn't mind a slice of it, regardless.

    Too bad about the pie, but yes that is a pretty dish! I noticed it right away. I agree about having exact measurements – so much more helpful than hoping that you have the right size fruit.
