Atlantic Beach Pie
The filling for this creamy Atlantic Beach Pie Recipe is bursting with lemon flavor. You can use just lemon juice in the filling recipe or a mix of lemon and lime juices. For this Atlantic Beach pie recipe a mix of the two juices was used, and with lime juice added, the filling has a flavor very similar to key lime pie. The best part about this quick and easy pie recipes idea is the sweet and salty crumb crust that is made from saltine crackers, butter, and some sugar. The crust is like nothing you've tried before and the perfect compliment to the lemon custard filling. You could use this pie crust recipe with other types of pie fillings. The lemon pie filling is then topped with whipped cream along with some coarse sea salt for garnish if you’d like it's a matter of personal taste.
When it comes to whipped cream for use in good pie recipes, you can either purchase homemade, or you can make a homemade whipped cream recipe of your own. Many people feel a bit intimidated at the thought of making their whipped cream. It's not difficult to do, but there are some things you need to do to make the recipe work, along with having the right tools. It is worth making your whipped cream recipe, as once you know how to make it, you'll realize just how easy it is, plus it tastes amazing. To make you will need some heavy whipping cream and some vanilla extract. You want to make sure that the heavy cream is left in the refrigerator right up until you're ready to whip it. When ready, measure the cream into the bowl of a stand mixer or a metal bowl, then add the vanilla and other flavorings. Start by whipping and increase the mixer speed to medium.
For the first few minutes, the cream will be very frothy and bubbly. Then after about 4 to 5 minutes you will start to see trails in the cream that don't immediately dissolve after the whisk moves this is a good thing. Keep whipping, and after about 6 to 7 minutes soft peaks should form. After about 7 to 8 minutes, you will watch as firm peaks form, and become stiffer and stiffer. The cream will start to take on volume, and if you take the whisk out of the cream, the peaks in the whipped cream will hold firmly but have slightly softened tips. This is usually the best stage to stop whipping and serve the whipped cream on top of your favorite dessert recipe, or for use in a recipe idea.
