This pie is delicious, with or without a filling. I make it with pecans and serve it with whipped topping and one shake of nutmeg on top. Or I make it without pecans and fill with fruit filling such as lemon filling. I use soda crackers, saltines, graham
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 3 egg whites
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 20 soda crackers, finely crushed
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
In a medium bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Fold in sugar, baking powder, crackers, vanilla and pecans. Spoon mixture into a greased 9 inch pie pan.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool and serve or fill with the fresh fruit of your choice.
