ATLANTIC BEACH PIE from CROOK'S CORNER in CHAPEL HILL, NC
THIS PIE.....lovies, THIS PIE is going to be an all time favorite
for your Summer gatherings!
It's heavenly, and so, so easy to prepare!
This pie took the Internet by storm after becoming a favorite
at Crook's Corner in Chapel Hill, North Carolina!
This pie is an original creation from Chef Bill Smith!!!!
It was interesting to note, that the filling is just like my Mother's
Lemon Pie, but the crust is made with saltine crackers, rather than
a graham cracker crust!
You can read about the diner and chef's in this article.....
Don't let summer pass by without making this pie for your family!
I chose to use lemon and lime, but you can easily choose to use just lemons!
Grating the zest for the topping on the whipped cream will add to the flavor!
The combination of sweet and salty from the saltines is genius!
Oh this filling....you just want to grab a spoonful, right?
Believe me, this pie won't last long....everyone loved it!
