As tomorrow is the first official day of Summer, I wanted to write about something that would be a great option for any summertime event. I was browsing through my Our State Magazine and saw this recipe for Atlantic Beach Pie in the May issue. Atlantic Beach is on the coast of North Carolina and I have spent beach time there a few times. It is a small community and would be great for a family trip.
The recipe I am sharing with you has a crust made of saltine crackers and I have never heard of this type of crust before. The pie filling reminds me a lot of the key lime pie recipe that includes sweetened condensed milk. I am including the entire article by Bill Smith because it has some great information about the pie. I am thankful for Bill Smith for preserving Southern food traditions.
Just reading this article takes me back to those wonderful summer beach trips to Atlantic Beach. I hope you create some wonderful summer memories starting now. Happy summer everyone and thanks for stopping by.
