Soda Cracker Torte

This is basically a meringue. You can put fruit on it, or do just about anything else you would do with meringues. I like it for two reasons: It's got an interesting, nutty-crunchy taste and texture, and I love hearing people say after they taste it, "Crackers? You're kidding!"

Ready In:
1hr
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 16 soda crackers (i.e. the small squares)
  • 1 cup nuts, pieces (pecans or walnuts, whichever you prefer)
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 12 teaspoon baking powder

directions

  • Process crackers and nuts in blender until finely ground.
  • Beat egg whites until soft peaks form.
  • Mix in vinegar.
  • Gradually add sugar, beating well after each addition.
  • Add vanilla and baking powder and beat until stiff.
  • Fold in cracker mixture.
  • Put into greased 8-inch square pan and bake at 300° about 25-30 minutes, or until cake tester in center comes out clean.
  • Cool in pan.
  • Cut in pieces to serve.
  • Be careful removing from pan, especially the first piece, as this is pretty crumbly.
