      Very pretty pie with a nice subtle taste. And the pomegranate seeds pack nice little bursts of flavor. I first saw this recipe in Family Circle magazine and tried it with less than stellar results. I had problems with the crust - it had to be reformed when taking it out of the oven, which was not expected. Cooling the crust will harden it, baking it longer will only burn it. Then I could not get the second layer to gel to the consistency of raw egg whites before I had to leave for Thanksgiving dinner (I had waited 2-3 hours). Well, I couldn't let the recipe defeat me so I had to try again. Got through the crust okay. However, for me, 15 minutes in the refrigerator for the bottom layer was not nearly long enough to get it to begin to gel. It ended up being more like 30-45 minutes. The top layer went without a problem though. I garnished with seeds and lime zest. The taste was much more subtle than expected but very nice. This isn't difficult to make; it just takes a long time. Thanks.
