  • Summary

    [Photograph: Vicky Wasik] This pie relies on the killer combo of citrus and dairy (think Creamsicle) for a mellow, sweet, and sour dessert. The crispy whole wheat crust underscores the zippy custard with its graham-like flavor, while fluffy peaks of toasted meringue recall those of a classic lemon meringue pie. It all comes together in a pie that tastes both familiar and distinctive at the same time.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 recipe Whole Wheat Pie Crust, blind-baked according to recipe directions
    • For the Filling:
    • 9 ounces sugar (shy 1 1/3 cups; 255g)
    • 1 1/2 ounces cornstarch (about 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon; 42g)
    • 1/4 teaspoon (1g) Diamond Crystal kosher salt; for table salt, use about half as much by volume or the same weight
    • 4 large eggs (about 7 ounces; 195g)
    • 1/4 ounce lime zest (about 2 tablespoons; 7g), from about 4 limes (see note)
