Ritz cracker pie

Anyone remember this one?

I don't make many deserts, but this is very easy and delicious. I've had this recipe for over 40 years.

Ritz cracker pie

3 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
25 Ritz crackers, crushed
1 c. chopped nuts
1 tsp. vanilla

Beat egg whites very stiff with an electric beater, then slowly add the sugar and vanilla; set aside. Crush the Ritz crackers in a plastic bag. Add the nuts and baking powder to the plastic bag, and shake. Fold the bag mixture into the egg white mixture in the bowl. Spread into a well buttered 9 inch pie plate. Bake 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool completely, and spread any kind of fruit jam you like on top, or you could use fresh seasonal berries, if they're available. Top the whole thing with whipped topping if you're serving guests. Otherwise, top each slice with whipped topping.
I like Redi Whip, myself.

Looks good Kayelle.

Wasn't there also a recipe for a mock apple pie using Ritz crackers?

Yep, it was one of Heloise's recipes. I think you can get it from her website still.

The "mock apple pie" also uses Ritz crackers but it has the dreaded (for me) double pastry crust. I remember eating it years ago, it was good, but I never could figure out why people thought it tasted like apple pie.
