Bill Smith’s Atlantic Beach Pie
For the crust:
1 ½ sleeves of saltine crackers (about 6 ounces or 60 crackers)
½ cup softened unsalted butter
3 tablespoons sugar
For the filling:
One 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
4 egg yolks
½ cup lemon or lime juice or a mix of the two
Fresh whipped cream, for garnish
Coarse sea salt, for garnish

Preheat oven to 350° F.
Crush the crackers finely, but not to dust. You can use a food processor or your hands. Add the sugar, then knead in the butter until the crumbs hold together like dough. Press into an 8-inch pie pan. Chill for 15 minutes, then bake for 18 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
While the crust is cooling (it doesn’t need to be cold), beat the egg yolks into the milk, then beat in the citrus juice. It is important to completely combine these ingredients. Pour into the shell and bake for 16 minutes until the filling has set. The pie needs to be completely cold to be sliced. Serve with fresh whipped cream and a sprinkling of sea salt.

This is the pie that is currently in my oven right now.

We have this hanging in the break room. Some of our names are harder to pronounce but some people just say completely wrong things. Not shown: Riesling Peached Pears (poached pears) and Atlantis Peach Pit (Atlantic Beach Pie).
