Have you ever heard of a cracker pie? Years and years ago, we made them all the time. I don’t know what made me think of them the other day but I’ve made two in the past few weeks.
They taste a lot like a baked meringue . . with pecans.
Served with a bit of whipped cream and it’s so good . . and so easy!
3 egg white
3/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 c. coarsely chopped pecans
pinch of salt
20 Ritz crackers, crushed (crumbled with your hands is good enough)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Spray a pie pan with non-stick spray.
Beat the egg whites till stiff. Gradually add sugar. Combine the remaining ingredients and mix well.
Pour into the pie pan and bake for 25 – 30 minutes at 325º.
Cool completely before cutting. Rinse the knife after each cut. If the knife is sticky, the pie will crumble. Serve with sweetened whipped cream.
