Though I have nothing against pie, I am practically the captain of team cake, so for time constraints alone, pie is not something that comes out of my oven all that often.
That said, when I read about Atlantic Beach Pie, first at NPR, then over on Food52, I was instantly intrigued. Saltines for the crust! Lots of lemon, little sugar! Tons of whipped cream! Sea salt (though doesn’t everything get sprinkled in sea salt these days?)!
I am happy to report that, not only is the pie extremely easy to make, it is downright delicious as well: cold, creamy, tart, sweet and salty, with a touch of toothsome crunch from the saltines. I would, and will, make this pie again and again, and am already wanting to experiment with the filling. Next up, chocolate cream.
