Monday’s Bread Bowl: Atlantic Beach Pie

A cool desert with zing

The tart lime flavors combined with a smooth and creamy consistency make for a rich lime pie that’s also really simple in preparation.

What you will need:

Creamy Filling
½ cup lemon juice or lime juice
2 large eggs
whipped topping
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk  
-- Pie Crust
1 (8 inch) pie pan
sleeves saltine crackers 
½ cup unsalted butter, softened
3 tbspns sugar

Cooking and Directions:

Preheat oven at 350 degrees.  Coarsely crush saltine crackers.  Add sugar then incorporate butter until crumbs can be molded into dough to form the pie crust.  Press into pie pan.  Chill for at least 15 to 20 minutes then bake for 15 to 20 minutes.  Let crust turn golden brown.  Remove from oven and cool. Meanwhile, beat the eggs and milk together.  Then blend in citrus juice.  Pour into pie crust and bake for 16 minutes until filling sets.  Pull out baked pie and let it cool to room temperature.  Place pie in the fridge for at least 3 hours.  Slice and serve cold.
