Atlantic Beach Pie
The recent super epic rainbow cake and its frosting required an excessive number of egg whites. It seemed a shame to waste so many accompanying egg yolks, which is why I've made batches of two different ice creams as well as this blog post's feature: Atlantic Beach Pie. In past attempts at this amazing (and ridiculously simple!) dessert, I've used a deep dish pie plate, which encouraged me to make too thin a crust with sides that loomed over the pie filling. When I made the pie this past week, I used a regular pie dish and got a pretty thick crust. I'm not sure which is better, but I do like the different special effect of using crushed Ritz with sugar and butter to create it, as opposed to the traditional graham cracker crust.
