Cook the Book: Creamiest Lime Cream Meringue Pie

To give extra kick to her Creamiest Lime Cream Meringue Pie from Baking: From My Home to Yours, Dorie Greenspan adds freshly grated ginger to the lime custard filling. Besides that I love lime meringue pies, I was caught by her description of the flavor as being, "big, bright and sassy." How many pies in my lifetime of pie eating have every been declared sassy? Possibly none, sadly. Not only is the pie sassy, but apparently the combination of lime and ginger will give your body the illusion of feeling cool, a good property for a pie to have in this hot, muggy weather. Why use air conditioning when you can eat pie?
