2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup Schnucks butter, melted
3/4 cup Schnucks sugar, divided
1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
4 yolks from large Schnucks eggs
1/2 cup lime juice

3-4 drops green food coloring
1/2 cup brine from a can of chickpeas

1 puff pastry sheet, thawed
1 large Schnucks egg, beaten
1 tbsp. water
4 oz. Schnucks goat cheese, softened

1 tsp. fresh thyme, finely chopped
salt and pepper, to taste
6 large beets, cooked, skin removed
