If you love lemon desserts, you must give this a try. Salty/sour/sweet flavors and the crunchy/chewy/creamy/velvety textures are everything!

Ingredients

  • Saltine Crust
  • 1.5 Sleeves of Saltine Crackers (about 6 ounces or 60 crackers)
  • 1/2 cup Softened Unsalted Butter
  • 3 tbsp. Granulated Sugar
  • Filling
  • 1 14-oz. Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 4 Egg Yolks
  • 1/2 cup Lemon or Lime Juice, or a mix of the two
  • Fresh whipped cream, for garnish
  • Lime or Lemon Zest, for garnish
  • Flaky Sea Salt, for garnish

Instructions

1

Preheat oven to 350°F.

2

Crush the crackers finely, but not to dust. You can use a food processor or your hands.

3

Add the sugar, then knead in the butter until the crumbs hold together like dough.

4

Press into an 8-inch pie pan. Chill for 15 minutes, then bake for 18 minutes or until the crust is light golden brown.

5

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.

6

Completely combine these ingredients into a smooth homogeneous mixture.

7

Pour into the Saltine crust and bake for 16 minutes until the filling has set.

8

Completely cool pie before slicing.

9

Serve with fresh whipped cream, zest and a sprinkling of flaky sea salt.
