TWD Creamiest Lime Cream Meringue Pie




Linda of Tender Crumb this Tuesday decided on Creamiest Lime Cream Meringue Pie and I wonder why I've never tried it before !!! This pie was exactly what we needed in this oven summer !!! Andrea, who usually tries my sweet baking for love's sake, became obsessed with this pie and asked it for his birthday in November !!
I made the crust with the Graham Crakers and followed the instructions very carefully : it took forever to reach the custard temp !!! I used a plumming torch to brown the meringue and we almost set the house on fire but it was well worth it ! Thanks again to Linda, please visit the TWD blogroll !!

Beautiful job! And it MUST have been a hit to have been requested for a birthday dessert!

And I'm glad you didn't set the house on fire!!!!

Huh? You can get Graham crackers in Italy??? I'm surprised... as they are totaly impossible to get in France... I know for I've looked for them when on holiday.

Either way... the pie looks great!

This tart is a work of art! It must be fantastic if Andrea wants to risk setting the house on fire again!

Gorgeous tart! I loved this one!

Linda said...

I"m so glad to hear that the pie was a great success. To convert a non-sweets eater with this pie --- now that's music to my ears! You did a fantstic job!

This looks just so beautiful, Natalia! You're a real professional. This was one of my favourite tarts before going vegan.
I know I owe you an email - I'm thinking of you and thankful for your friendship!
