I’ve never met a pie I didn’t like, but meringue pies are special. My mom made incredible lemon meringue pie when I was growing up and I loved it so much. So when I saw a coconut lime meringue pie in the latest season of the Great British Bake Off, I knew it had to be my next entry in my tribute series. I already have made kouign amann, lemon poppy seed drizzle cake, homemade English muffins, and homemade ciabatta bread from the show. I thought the pie looked like such an amazing twist on my mom’s pie. It took some time to make but it was so fun!
Oh my goodness, this was definitely an incredible and fun twist on the pie I grew up loving. The coconut and lime were amazing together and the crisp meringue gave it such fantastic texture. I followed the recipe from the show pretty closely and just made a couple of tweaks. For instance, I could not find desiccated coconut anywhere, so I just put in a little coconut extract for the meringue. I hope you all love this pie as much as I did!! It really is perfect for summer. xoxo
