I'm a lime freak. This is a nice change from the lemon version.

Loved the lime flavour! I tried something different and didn't use a pastry shell at all. I just poured the filling into the dish and popped the meringue on top and made a Lime meringue dessert instead of a Lime meringue pie! Very nice and saved some calories too! I also cut the sugar down to 1 cup which was plenty and still very, very sweet. Yummy dessert,many thanks!
