TWD Creamiest Lime Cream Meringue Pie

Lime pie in the summertime, what more could you ask for? Once again I had a recipe that tempers eggs, it makes me so nervous! Fortunately, this was a success and my pie had a creamy and delicious lime flavor, rather than egg!

Linda, from Tender Crumb, selected this recipe and her photos are amazing! Seriously, some people really put me to shame. I love the creamy lime flavor, but agree with Linda that I was wanting more ginger. I am, however, not a meringue fan, so I opted to top my pie with whipped cream. I believe whipped cream can top anything and make it better!

I loved the pie in a graham cracker crust and thought Linda's suggestion not to sweeten it was a good idea. I'll have to try that next time. If you're interested in a zingy and delicious summer pie, head over to Tender Crumb and check out the recipe and amazing pictures!

I love lime pies so this might just be a final Summer fling dessert. Mmmm! Whipped cream sounds like a much better topping.
