TWD: Creamiest Lime Cream Meringue Pie

So this week, I'm at my parents house in Maryland. One thing you have to know about my father is that he looooves pies. So when I saw that this week's Tuesday with Dorie was the Creamiest Lime Cream Meringue Pie, I knew it was a match made in heaven. So thank you Linda of Tender Crumb. And be sure to check out her site for the recipe, and check out the other bakers on the TWD blogroll.

So, I originally meant to make this last night, but being me, I didn't read the recipe all the way through and didn't realize it required a lot of time chilling. But I did get it finished today, although it is now waiting in the fridge until we have the pleasure of eating it.

Unfortunately, when I needed to brown the meringue, my mom had put some cornish hens in the oven for dinner, so I had to use the little portable oven they had. And unfortunately, it got a little darker than I had wanted, but you live and learn. This was my first meringue pie, and I think it turned out pretty well.

I hope that your Dad enjoyed this pie!

I'm so impressed --- i would have never guessed from those photos of your fluffy meringue that you're a meringue neophyte.

Thanks for baking along with me this week!

The meringue looks great to me - not too brown at all. I made this for my dad too - he LOVES key lime pie so I thought he would enjoy this (he did).
