I bought a lemon meringue pie today. Looked forward to eating it this evening with a nice cup of early grey tea. Took one bite and realised it was an imposter. A key lime pie. Yuck. Turns out that the reason the key lime pie looks like a lemon meringue pie is because the pile of vile cream on top is whisked with egg whites to make it look like its finer cousin. Reminds me of a photo I took a while back of the king of lemon meringue pies available from Eli’s on 3rd Avenue for a snip at $95. That’s a lot of pie. And no, that’s not gold dust on top, but it should be for that price.
