Lime Meringue Ice Cream Pie

Lime Custard Ice Cream PieEvery now & again you come across a recipe that is such an epic crowd pleaser that everyone from family to friends, foodies to kiddies swoon from the rafters asking for seconds.

About 7 years ago at a July 4th celebration on my dumbo terrace I created my very 1st ice cream pie. Spotted originally on Epicurious through Bon Appétit was a mouth-watering Lemon Meringue ice cream pie with a pecan crust that happened to check off all the right boxes in my book.  Just the right amount of refreshing sweetness coupled with varying textures of mouth puckering citrus flavor that was creamy, cool, tart, & bright! All layers were sandwiched between a nutty crunchy base & finished with an airy light golden topping.  The pie was such an intense success that you’d have thought it would have remained in my summer dessert repertoire. Somehow, I never made it again.

Fast forward to a month ago; while experiencing the tasting menu at Battersby, A favorite neighborhood spot for me & Victor, the end of our meal was celebrated with a lime meringue ice cream pie which was beyond delicious & incredibly reminiscent of that pie I made many years prior.  I decided I would re-create a mélange of the two deserts for my Dad’s 70th birthday party.

I am not going to lie, this desert is time consuming as you must freeze each layer and wait before continuing to the next step –  but I promise, be patient…your taste buds will thank me for it once this perfect lush desert hits your palette on a hot summers day.  It’s that good…a glorious combination of flavors & textures that’s not to be missed!
