    Visually stunning dessert that turned out to look as beautiful as the one in the book. The root beer syrup, both times I made it, took longer than an hour to condense and somehow seemed to lose its "root beeriness," although the syrup itself was still delicious. I used the brown butter cookie crust. The highlight of the pie was the mile-high meringue swirled to a point and artistically torched.
