Author Notes

It's like Key Lime & Lemon Meringue had a baby and gave us this delicious tropical freshing, salty, sweet & savory pie! You will want this for every summer get together. I found this recipe originally from Bill Smith of Crook's Corner in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Garnish with freshly whipped cream and coarse salt. Learned from late night binge watching Food 52. —Tiffany Audia

  • 1 1/2 packets Saltine Crackers ( about 60 crackers/200 grams)
  • 3 tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted butter ( 1 stick) room temp
  • 4 Egg yolks
  • 1 Can of 14oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 pinch Kosher salt
  • 1 Container cool whip
In This Recipe
  1. Make the crust: heat oven to 350°. Using a food processor or your hands, pulse or crush the crackers finely( stop before all crackers turn into dust) its ok to have chunky parts, add sugar then butter.
  2. Pulse to combine or work the butter in with your hands until crumbs hold together like dough. Press into pie pan of 9inch pie pan. Bake 12 mins at 350.
  3. Make the filling: while the crust cools , in med bowl. Whisk eggs into condensed milk one egg yolk at a time. Then add lemon or lime juice or both ( I do both) , salt, and making sure to mix real good.
  4. Pour into pie crust and bake about 15 mins or until you can wiggle the pan and nothing in middle giggles. Now let cool in refrigerator atleast an hour. Then top with cool whip, fresh lemon or lime zest or both ( again I do both) and a lil kosher salt on top. And enjoy!
