“Limeade Pie”


Description from Px3 aka Peggy: Another trip down memory lane: My Aunts' sister-in-law baked limeade pies that were to die for! Lemonade pies too. They were translucent in color, just like the limeade itself, with Meringue piled high and a crust that would melt in your mouth. I have never been able to find a recipe anything like this! Has anyone ever seen a recipe like this?

    Mouth-watering Pick; I Googled ‘Recipe Limeade Pie’ and got several recipes; you should check them out & see if any of them sounds like what your relative made…

    SLURP!! A luscious pick for a wonderful memory!
    I “Binged” Limeade pie and also found several recipes. All had cream in the recipe so they may not be translucent. I’m really curious to find one like your relative made.

    I know there was no cream or eggs in the recipe. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a depression era recipe.
    I have looked for years for a recipe like it. That and her frosting for Angel food cake. It had a firm exterior, but was creamy and delicious inside, almost like marshmallow cream. I know it was a cooked frosting. As a kid I never thought to ask for recipes. Drat!

    Hmmmm…depression era? I wonder if it was a simple mixture of lime or lemon juice, sugar and cornstarch. Slowly heated to make a “pudding” or filling and then poured into the crust? Kind of like making a glaze filling for fresh strawberry pie.
    I can probably find several recipe options for the frosting if you like. I wonder if it was a 7 minute frosting? I remember a similar “marshmallow cream” textured frosting that was used as a filling in a rolled cake. Like a jelly roll cake. You’ve got me curious now Peggy!

    Mary, you are good!! Knowing Aunt Dora, that sounds right. She was a frugal person. Thanks!!!
    As for the frosting, the 7 minute is the closest I have found.
