I’m not sure why this recipe is called Macaroon Pie, because to me, “macaroon” implies that there’s coconut somewhere in the recipe, but such is not the case here. However, since that’s what we’ve always called it, I’ll still be calling it that. It’s an old recipe of my grandmother’s, very easy, and oh, so good . . .
3 egg whites
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon almond flavoring
12 crackers, crumbled
12 dates, chopped
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Beat egg whites till foamy. Add sugar gradually.
Beat until stiff.
Add almond flavoring, and fold in crackers, dates, and nuts.
Put in a greased 9″ pie plate.
Bake 30-35 minutes at 325 degrees.
Top with whipped cream, and sprinkle with more chopped pecans.
