Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 1 1/2 sleeves of saltine crackers
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons sugar

 

For the filling:

  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • Fresh whipped cream, for garnish
  • Coarse sea salt, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Crush the crackers finely. Add the sugar, then knead in the butter until the crumbs hold together into a dough. Press the dough into an 8-inch pie pan. Chill the crust for 15 minutes, then bake until the crust lightly browns, about 18 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the egg yolks into the milk, then beat in the citrus juice. Continue to mix on medium until thoroughly combined.
  4. Pour the pie batter into the shell, and bake until the filling has set, about 16 minutes.
  5. Transfer baked pie to a wire rack to cool completely, then transfer to the refrigerator.
  6. Serve with fresh whipped cream and a sprinkle of sea salt.
