Tuesdays With Dorie 49: Creamiest Lime Cream Meringue Pie


As the name implies, this is one creamy, delicious pie. Now there is nothing I love more than creamy desserts, however this would also be a great dessert for those of you who find creamy desserts too rich, because it is ladened with lime and ginger. I can just imagine bringing out this beautiful pie at the end of a nice BBQ on a hot Summer day- how well the lime cream would hold up in the humid Australian weather I am not too sure.


This pie is pretty much exactly the same as the Lemon Meringue Pie I have made a few times in the past (also from Dorie's book). Instead of either of the two pie crusts Dorie recommended, I went for the Sweet Tart Dough just because I love it so much. Honestly, call me boring, but I do prefer the lemon version. I did find the ginger a little confronting and I was glad that I held back from the recommended amount. Thanks to Linda of Tender Crumb for choosing this week's recipe- check out her blog for this delicious recipe!

Like I said before, I'll say it again... I have to get myself one of those long mouls, I find them to make such classy looking pies!

Very well done, Bria!

I agree with your assesment of the ginger, it was a little much.

Great looking tart, though.
