Cracker pie

My mom used to make this and probably still does. I think she got the recipe from one of our neighbors. I made it yesterday afternoon for us to enjoy after jambalaya last night. Even Nick, who is not a fan of sweets, will eat this.

It’s the easiest dessert ever, and quite tasty:

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 c sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 16 saltine crackers, crushed
  • 3/4 c crushed pecans
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Beat egg whites with sugar until frothy.  Add cream of tartar. Fold in remaining ingredients. Bake in ungreased glass pie dish at 350 for 30 minutes.

I usually serve this topped with fresh whipped cream (heavy cream whipped with sugar, vanilla and almond extract to taste). Delicious and so easy!
