Ingredients:

For the crust:

  • 1 1/2 sleeves (about 180g) saltine crackers
  • 1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar

For the filling:

  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) fresh lemon juice
  • Zest of 1 lemon

For the topping:

  • 1 cup (240 ml) heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • Additional zest or lemon slices for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Make the crust:
    • Crush the saltine crackers until you have fine crumbs. You can use a food processor or place the crackers in a sealed plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin.
    • In a bowl, combine the cracker crumbs, melted butter, and sugar. Mix until the crumbs are evenly coated.
    • Press the mixture into a 9-inch pie plate, covering the bottom and sides to form the crust.
  3. Bake the crust:
    • Bake the crust in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes or until it becomes golden brown. Allow it to cool completely.
  4. Make the filling:
    • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the sweetened condensed milk, egg yolks, lemon juice, and lemon zest until well combined.
    • Pour the filling into the cooled crust.
  5. Bake the pie:
    • Bake the pie for about 10 minutes or until the filling is set. The edges should be firm, but the center may still be slightly jiggly.
  6. Chill the pie:
    • Allow the pie to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until fully chilled.
  7. Make the whipped cream:
    • In a separate bowl, whip the heavy cream and powdered sugar until stiff peaks form.
  8. Serve:
    • Spread the whipped cream over the chilled pie.
    • Optionally, garnish with additional lemon zest or lemon slices.
  9. Enjoy:
    • Slice and serve your delicious Atlantic Beach Pie chilled.

This pie is known for its unique combination of salty and sweet flavors, making it a refreshing and delightful dessert.
