DIRECTIONS

  • In a mixing bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar 1 tablespoons at a time, on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved. Fold in the crackers, pecans and vanilla.
  • Spread onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 10-inch deep pie pan. Bake at 350F for 25-30 minutes or until meringue is lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack. Set aside 1 strawberry for garnish.
  • Slice half the strawberries and set aside. In a bowl, mash the remaining strawberries; drain juice, reserving 1/2 cup. In a saucepan, combine marshmallows and reserved juice. Cook and stir over low heat until marshmallows are melted. Refrigerate until partially set.
  • Fold the sliced and mashed strawberries and whipped topping into marshmallow mixture. Spoon into meringue shell. Garnish with reserved strawberry.
  • Refrigerate for 3 hours or until set.
