Thank you for your time and effort, Mr. Nicko. Y'all are very appreciated.
Could it have been a bottled plate scraper?
Oh! It's a cooked glaze! The boiling dissolves the sugar and caramelizes it for a sticky texture. Will be grainy and wet without cooking but I haven't known anyone to turn away cake lol
I'm not sure why it would say to boil. Did it call for white sugar or powdered? Making a powdered sugar glaze would be powdered sugar, a little buttermilk, little vanilla. Can also add melted butter and/or sour cream to mimic the buttermilk flavor. Doesn't need to be cooked, just whisked until lump free.

I ended up having the surgery and have had no pain since then. Literally could sleep from...
Have you tried other key lime pies that you like? Perhaps you prefer the taste of key lime curd instead. It's just sugar, eggs for coagulation and lime juice but it's cooked on a stove. Can add a cornstarch slurry for stability if you're not used to making curds.
Take out Chicken Pho and stuffed chicken wings. The description said pork, crab and mushrooms but it tasted like spicy sausage. Delicious!
Texas, Memphis or Carolina barbeque
