The Creamiest Lime Pie-Tuesdays with Dorie

PhotobucketGoodbye, Pie!PhotobucketHello, Pudding!That about sums it up, guys! The gremlins managed to thwart my attempts at successfully making the pie filling. But as Julia Child said, “You should never apologize at the table. People will think, ‘Yes, it’s really not so good.” Actually, the not so creamy lime meringue pie was delicious as a pudding with clumps of graham cracker crust dotted throughout giving some structure to the dessert. Yes, I’ll make it again and figure out what went wrong. On the TWD comments page for the pie, there are some great suggestions of variations on the pie. Thanks to Linda of TenderCrumb for choosing this lovely tangy lime pie(pudding). Her pie is exquisite! Check it out! The recipe is from “Baking From My Home to Yours” by Dorie Greenspan. If you don’t have the book, Linda has the recipe on her blog.

    I don't know if Julia said it, but I'll say it:" How could anyone even think you'd fail when something soooo pretty came out of it!" …had you not said anything (like Julia suggests, everyone would have thought you had done it on purpose! LOLBravo! Amazing save!

    I think it probably tasted better as a pudding anyway. Looks delish- great photos!

    That Julia Child quote has never left my mind! I totally agree! That is a gorgeous pie, though, and I think you did a great job!

    I'm so sorry to hear that the cream didn't set up. Great thinking to salvage it and presenting it as a pudding…this cream was to die for, wasn't it! I hope you'll give it a another go, as the cream was fantastic in the pie.Thanks so much for baking along with me this week! 🙂

    Looks just as yummy as pudding as it did as pie. Maybe better.

    Nothing wrong with a lime pudding pie. I know my family would yum it right up.
