100_2276This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie was chosen by Linda of Tender Crumb.  She decided on Dorie’s Creamiest Lime Cream Meringue Pie.  Which is located on pages 337-339 in Baking: From My Home to Yours. As soon as I saw this choice I was excited.  I love Lemon Meringue Pie, and I also love Dorie’s Lemon Cream.  So I knew that the Lime Cream was going to be equally fantastic.

I actually made this pie at the beginning of the month for a dinner party at my friend Amanda’s.  It was so perfect and spot on since it is summer here.  Surprisingly, with all the butter that is in the cream, the pie does not come off too rich.  I probably could have sat there and eaten the entire thing.  I think next time that I might add a little more ginger to the filling because I actually never really tasted it.

Of course for the topping you know I busted out my kitchen torch and had a grand ole time lighting it on fire 🙂
