TWD: Creamiest Lime Cream Meringue Pie

Sigh...I really am turning into an unreliable blogger. I want to blog, trust me I do, but something always happens to delay my blogging. This week the excuse is one word: Router. Do you guys have a router? Does it affect your ability to connect to the internet? Alex set up our router this week and it has totally killed my laptop's internet abilities. I can't check my blogs, I can't upload pictures, and I can't even send emails. What's the point of internet then? When the internet was hooked up directly to my laptop it worked like a dream, but with the router it sucks. Any techies out there know why this is happening?

Anyways, this post shouldn't be about my computer issues. It should be about the deliciousness that is the Creamiest Lime Cream Meringue Pie. My taste buds exploded with this dessert. I followed the recipe almost to a T except I didn't drain out the lime zest and I topped the pies with whipped cream instead of the meringue. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to enjoy this treat if I did the meringue topping because I didn't trust eating the meringue with the pregnancy. This was a great substitution and I think it made the dessert just a little more sinful. The lime taste is so soft and delicate and yet it's so vibrant and tart. It was just delicious.

Thanks Linda of Tender Crumb for choosing this week's recipe. Make sure to check out her blog for the recipe and the TWD site to see what the other bakers did this week.
Plain and simple.
All done up.

I like the miniature version! Lime is a really great flavor for pies.

Sorry to hear about your internet troubles and I hope it gets resolved quickly. I use a router, though I haven't experienced any troubles except for my slowish laptop. Can't really help because I'm not very technologically adept.

Yey! These were my birthday treat and I loved them! My mother-in-law ate like three of them at the party.
