TWD:Creamiest Lime Meringue Pie

This weeks recipe is a play on lemon meringue or key lime pie as it is topped with meringue in my family recipe. This was a fantastic pie! The ginger really was subtle, but helped to ramp up the lime flavor.

There was a bit of me that was shocked at the amount of butter added to the lime cream and if I make it in future I might just go for the straight lime cream as I thought it was fantastic!

I used a cookie crust- mostly as I knew I wouldn't have enough butter otherwise! Make sure you try this recipe its a very yummy one!

Mmm, I love how creamy and buttery yellow yours is, against the caramelized top of the meringue. Looks delish!

It looks so good! I love how voluptuous the cream is!

The amount of butter in the cream is pretty shocking,isn't it? I'm also going to play with the quantity of butter next time, as i think i will be just as good. Your pie turned out beautifully!

Thx so much for baking along with me this week!
