    Good job!!

    Once you start having success with your crusts - you will never want to eat store bought ever again.

    I use the recipe for the crust from The Joy Of Cooking. It REALLY helps to refrigerate the dough for a while. Also, I use a very thin piece of cloth, almost like linen, impregnated with flour as a surface to roll out the dough. It works great and you can pick the whole thing up to invert the dogh onto the pan or top half of the pie.

    Happy Eating.

    I keep reading "cowpie," lol. Looks delicious, Clint. Let us know how it tastes.

    My sister's first pie looked like some mutant 3 or 4 times later and it looks like a formal pie.

    There are all kinds of different homemade crusts you can make. I make my key lime pie crust with soda crackers, slivered almonds, sugar, and butter. Sounds crazy, but is very good.

    Get some heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, lime juice, and whip up a topping to replace the merange. Much better! My grandma used to call merange "calf spit".

    Good cooking takes practice and a whole lotta trial and error.

    YUMMO! That looks great to me. Did you use real key limes? I love a GOOD key lime pie but they are hard to find.

    I'll take a slice of pie...and those jadeite plates and the bowl in the sink.

    It was practically soup inside.... But I froze it and it made great ice cream. I don't know HOW it could have gone wrong. The filling was 1/2 cup lime juice, 4 eggs, and 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk. It's not rocket science, but somehow It turned out liquid. Like... drink it with a straw liquid.

    I did use real key limes, and I'm not sure my mother knows I used her jadeite lmao.
