Be careful of your egg white product, meringue proportion was not correct for all products
I have made the older version of the Key Lime Pie from the Eating Well cookbook many times and it is delicious, although very time consuming with the cooked meringue top. I thought I would try this updated version with the dried egg whites. The meringue didn't turn out, I did question it when making it because the dried egg white powder product I purchased says 2 tablespoons of dried powder is equivalent to 1 egg white. I did think it was strange that the recipe was calling for only one egg white, esp with the required quantity of sugar. Well, needless to say the meringue was too flat and too sweet. So, I believe the recipe should call for the equivalent of 2 eggs whites, don't follow the 2 tablespoon directions! I will have to try the recipe again, but alas, for Easter today everyone will just have to scrape of the topping.
Pros: Healthier version of key lime pie
