Atlantic Beach Pie Ingredients:

For the crust:

      • sleeves saltine (with salt) crackers (about 60 crackers)
      • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
      • ½ cup unsalted butter (1 stick), at room temperature

For the filling:

      • 4 egg yolks
      • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
      • ½cup lemon or lime juice, or a mix of the two
      • Pinch of kosher salt
      • Fresh whipped cream, lemon or lime zest and flaky sea salt, for garnish (optional)

Atlantic Beach Pie Instructions:

  1. Make the crust: Heat oven to 350 degrees. Using a food processor or your hands, pulse or crush the crackers finely. (Stop before all the crackers turn to dust; it’s O.K. if you have some little pieces.) Add sugar, then butter.

  2. Pulse to combine or work the butter in with your hands until the crumbs hold together like dough. Press into and up the sides of a 9-inch pie pan. Freeze for 15 minutes, then bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until the crust gets a little color.

  3. Make the filling: While the crust is cooling (it doesn’t need to be cold), in a medium bowl, whisk egg yolks into condensed milk, then whisk in the lemon or lime juice (or both), and salt, making sure to combine them completely.

  4. Pour into the shell, and bake for 14 to 16 minutes until the filling has set. Refrigerate until completely cold, 4 hours up to overnight. Serve with fresh whipped cream, lemon or lime zest and a sprinkling of flaky sea salt, if desired.
