Soda Cracker Pie

Serves: 8

3 egg whites
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. vanilla
12 (2"x2") soda crackers
Fresh fruit of choice

Beat egg whites until very stiff. Gradually add in sugar. Fold in baking powder and vanilla. Crush the crackers into very fine crumbs. The finer the crumbs the more delicate the crust.
Gently fold crumbs into the egg whites. Grease 9" pie plate liberally with butter-flavored Crisco. Bake at 375* for 20-25 minutes. You want it done but not too brown. Let cool completely. Fill with fresh, in-season sliced fruit. My thoughts: Love this pie for Sunday brunch or church pot luck dinners. It's one of Rick's favorite pies. (His other 2 favorites are "hot" and "cold.") Our fresh fruit of choice is strawberries in season or Palisade peaches from Colorado.

Serve it with: Top with with whipped sweetened cream or whipped topping if desired.
