    I've bookmarked this one to try, but I'll be making it with my own crust of part graham cracker crumbs and part crushed gingersnaps. Looks and sounds wonderful.

    The idea of raw eggs concerns me and so I love your wise advice to use the egg beaters or other such products. common sense and a dose of prevention are so attractive.
    Thanks for a perfect pie.

    This is awsome. I made two of these last night to take to an office potluck today. I'm up early and have just finished putting the meringue on. They are beautiful. Can't wait for noon.
