Nut And Graham Cracker Pie
I was a little dubious when I first came across this recipe. It's another one from my grandmother. She made a note on the card that she had gotten it from a relative while in Corpus Christi, Texas in 1933. Apparently it's a version of the old fashioned soda cracker pie.
I wasn't sure how it would turn out, but thought I'd give it a try. Boy, am I glad I did. The exterior is crisp like a meringue, but it's chewy inside with a sweet, nutty flavor.
Serve it with whipped cream and fresh fruit for an unusual and delightful dessert.
Mix together the graham cracker crumbs, chopped nuts and salt.
Beat the egg whites, gradually adding the sugar, until thickened. It will have the consistency of marshmallow cream.
Fold the graham cracker mixture into the egg whites.
Pour into a 9-inch buttered pie pan.
Bake in a pre-heated 325 degree F oven for 35 minutes.
Allow to cool and serve topped with fresh whipped cream.
Time to prepare: 50 minutes.
