• Macaroon Pie

    Posted on February 1, 2012 by in Recipes

    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.

One Responseso far.
