Creamiest Lime Cream Meringue Pie (TWD) Linda of Tender Crumb picked the Creamiest Lime Cream Meringue Pie for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe. If you haven't yet visited Linda's site, you really should. Her photo's are crystal clear and so hunger inducing.
Creamiest Lime Cream Meringue Pie (TWD)This is only the sixth recipe that I have made from Dorie's cookbook but I think it's going to be one of my favourites ( you may find me saying that quite often ). :> If anyone has been with this blog since the beginning way back in March, then you know how much I love lemons and limes. So much so that I add twice the amounts called for in recipes. A lot of citrus inspired recipes are simply too sweet and they don't merit using the words lemon or lime in their title. My measurement altering sometimes yields slightly mushy results but at least it produces the tartness that I crave. It truely is an obsession.
Some recipes are spot on! The lemon bars I made earlier in the summer were perfect! No additional gallons of lemon juice were necessary. The same applies to this pie.

I could seriously go on and on about this pie and take up an entire page of my blog. But as it is I may already bore you with my run-on sentences. :) So I will try and keep this brief. If you love the 'tart' aspect of citrus desserts, if this is in fact your favourite part of a dessert, then this is the pie for you! The lime cream is similar to a curd except, as indicated in the title, it is on the creamier side. But don't let this fool you into thinking it isn't as puckery as a curd. It just gives it the flavour and texture of an edible sublime silk. The addition of freshly ground ginger makes it all the more cheek tingling. When this pie is nice and cold, you feel as though you are eating the food of the Gods. The forbidden pie. While you eat it, the cool lime cream melts gently into the buttery, slightly sweet and flaky crust. The meringue is like a puffy cloud that floats sweetly on top of the lime but never fights the tartness. They play gently together.
Creamiest Lime Cream Meringue Pie (TWD) I set aside a piece for myself without the meringue and it was heaven! It was so good in fact that I may make it again this week. Just writing about it is enough to make me crave a slice!
