Recipe by True Texas
READY IN: 1hr 10mins




  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • Let egg whites come to room temperature.
  • Butter a 9-inch pie pan. Mix together crackers, pecans and baking powder. Set aside.
  • In large bowl, beat egg whites on low speed with electric mixer until foamy. Add cream of tarter, increase mixer speed to medium and beat until soft peaks form.
  • Continue beating while gradually adding sugar to mixture. Then increase speed to high and beat, scraping sides of bowl often until stiff peaks form. Mixture will be stiff and glossy.
  • Beat in vanilla. Fold in cracker-pecan mixture. Spread mixture evenly in buttered pie pan and bake on middle rack of oven for 40 minutes.
  • Let pie completely on wire rack. Don't worry if pie cracks and falls a bit as it cools.
  • Cover and refrigerate cooled pie until ready to serve.
  • Before serving, prepare topping by whipping cream until it begins to thicken. Add powdered sugar and vanilla and continue beating until cream is thick and forms soft peaks.
  • Spread sweetened whipped cream on top of cooled pie and sprinkle 1/4 cup pecans evenly over the cream.
  • Leftover pie should be covered and stored in refrigerator.
