Rustic Elegance, Easy as Pie**

** Recipe Included for a simple, awesome pie

Rustic, elegant, pleasing....

So lovely and relaxing!

An elegant yet humble kitchen:

Saltine Cracker Pie.
This divine meringue pie is magic.  The simple recipe has such humble ingredients, you cannot believe the results. 

No one would guess that this divine meringue pie comes from such humble beginnings, but the best is usually the simplest, right? 

  • This is my mother-in-law's version. Sinfully  delicious:
  • 16 Saltine Crackers, Crumbled
  • 9" Pie Pan, Buttered
  • 3 Egg Whites
  • 1/4 t. cream of tartar
  • 1 C Sugar
  • 1/2 C Pecans, Chopped
  • 2 tsp Vanilla

  • Beat egg whites until foamy
  • Add cream of tartar and beat egg whites until stiff
  • Gradually Add sugar to egg whites slowly
  • Fold the crumbled crackers into the egg whites.
  • Fold in pecans and vanilla
  • Pour into the buttered pie pan
  • Bake at 350º F for 30 minutes. Cool and refrigerate.
Top it with whipped cream,throw in  pineapple preserves mixed with the whipped cream ,or use chocolate whipped cream, ice cream ...yum!

Simple Ingredients, elegant results. 

Have a great day!
