    7. When crust is cooled, spread a thin layer of pudding into crust.  (Optional: Spread a layer of melted chocolate to base of crust prior to adding pudding.)
    8. Arrange prepared fruit as desired. Be sure to start placing fruits along the edge of the crust first, and work your way into the center
    9. Create glaze by adding limeade, cornstarch, lime juice, and sugar into a small saucepan and cooking over medium heat for approximately two minutes.
