Wow! So Simple! Elegant and Delicious. Quick and Easy. I had to use coarsley chopped walnuts, no pecans. And I put some fine crushed crackers on top for garnish. I made a Ritz Cracker Pie but not with egg whites! This is really great. I will post a photo!This is very economical to the food budget also. Thanks for posting!

My mother used to make this pie 30 years ago, we loved it, but I had forgotten about it until I came across it here. Delish!! I sprinkle some fine ritz and pecans on the top of mine before baking, I made it for my sister this weekend as a suprise desert, I didn't think that she would remember it right away, but she did!!! Its a great desert, so light and flavorful. Thanks

A distant relative in our town has been making this pie for years for the local auction sales. It will bring as high as $100.00 and more at times. My sister wanted the recipe and she shared it with her. Now we have it for special occasions. Trust me it's out of this world. I would almost pay a hundred dollars for one of these pies too.
