Soda Cracker Pie

I made soda cracker pie the other night and every bite reminded me that this is one of my favorite pies. Soda Cracker Pie recipes can be found in cookbooks from the late 1800s. This is my grandmother’s recipe and she would serve it with tea after dinner. It’s a great last-minute dessert and it takes just a few minutes to whip up.

In mixing bowl, beat egg whites, sugar and vanilla until stiff.

In another bowl, slightly crush 14 small squares Saltine crackers. Stir in baking powder and walnuts. Fold into egg white mixture.

Pour mixture into greased pie tin. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes.

Cool completely. To serve, add a dollop of whipped cream.
