Praline Pie

Pie_plate


Here's a retro pie for you to try -- it sounds interesting to say the least!

Texarkana, Texas Praline Pie

3 egg whites
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
20 butter crackers, crushed
3/4 cup pecans, chopped

Preheat oven to 425 deg.  With your mixer, beat together   egg whites, baking powder, and vanilla until stiff.  Gradually add in sugar a tablespoon at at time.  Fold in cracker crumbs and chopped pecans.  Pour into a well-greased pie pan.  Bake for 30 minutes.  Cool.  Top with whipped cream.  Serves 8-10.

Sounds rich, doesn't it?
