Background on Bill's Atlantic Beach Pie

 A refreshing offering from the Carolinas

 We like our variation of Bill’s Atlantic Beach Pie for its simplicity.  We used two whole eggs instead of 4 egg yolks.  The end product has more zing per serving compared to more elaborate and costly dessert pies.  Older recipes did not include a crust or called for a crust made with soda crackers.  The usual main ingredients include condensed milk, sugar, lime juice, and eggs.  Meanwhile, the addition of green food coloring is not a requisite but serves as a nice way of distinguishing this lime flavored custard pie from others.  If you want to be fancy, a toasted meringue frosting can be used to top our rendition.
