Vintage Pies & Recipes


 
I saw this recipe for Atlantic Beach Pie at the online site for Our State Magazine. It includes an unusual ingredient and there's a great story, too. We'll be trying this pie soon.

    I seriously love this recipe, and I don't see why I couldn't make my own for myself (and company) for Mother's Day! Thanks so much!

    So, it's a Lemon Ice Box Pie with a saltine or Ritz Cracker Crust. I like that and will have to give it a try. Lemon Pie's always a hit around mi casa.

    Not sure what to think about this pie.  People sure do seem to love it, though.  I would definitely try it.

    We tried this tonight. That crust is really salty, we're trying to think of a way to reduce the salt.

    I flagged MellowRoast's post by accident, I'm reading on my iPad and accidentally touched the wrong part of the screen in two places. Moderators, could you unflag it please?

    Bummer!  What about substituting something like water crackers or oyster crackers for some of the saltines?  
     
    Thank you for letting us know.

    L2B - That would work. We were going to look for unsalted saltines, but that seems like an oxymoron.

    Why not try the Ritz crackers mentioned in the story?

    MH (if that's really MH)- Ritz are still pretty salty, but we may do that.

    The article didn't say, but I was wondering if the cracker crust started in the Great Depression or maybe because crackers were something readily available when at the beach.

    Nabisco makes low sodium saltine cracker.

    Some time back, I read about a 'Mock Apple Pie' in a cookbook. It used flat crackers in lieu of apples. Apparently it went back to when crackers were less expensive than fruit. Never did try it but it sounded interesting. I think that particular recipe used Ritz crackers although, no doubt, there are variations galore. Makes me  think crackers must have been less salty than now, although, as you say, there are low salt crackers now. So many crackers now are so thin, I wonder if they would hold up or just go to mush in such a recipe. I wonder if some people used pilot crackers, like Vermont Country Store sells. I understand those are so sturdy you can split them in two if you're careful. You mix the crackerss with typical spice, sugar, ect. Don't know if the flavor was considered similar or just the appearance. Viniger pie goes back to when lemons were rare or expensive.

    Every week after my grandma churned butter , she made a buttermilk pie. As I remember a custard pie with a buttermilk tang. Grocery store buttermilk is not the same. Would love to find fresh buttermilk.

    I don't know if this is vintage, but it is certainly unique - Pepsi and Lance Peanut Pie.
     
    This is another recipe from Our State magazine. You are likely to see this next year on Pie Day.

    That's funny!  Peanuts bobbing around in cola bottles looks gross to me, but my folks did it when they lived in Tennessee--said it was convenient.  Looking forward to seeing pics and hearing what you think of the pie.
