Peach Torte Pie



I've got another Granny recipe for you all today, but I have to tell you: I'm not entirely sure I have the name right.  I sometimes have a hard time reading her handwriting :)

You will need:
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup chopped nuts
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup crushed saltines
  • 2 or more cups peaches
  • Whipped cream or ice cream (optional)
Also, I would highly highly highly recommend a stand mixer or electric beater.

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.  Beat the egg whites until foamy.

Add vanilla, salt, and sugar.  Beat until stiff (this takes a while).

Fold in the nuts, baking powder, and saltines.

Spread the mixture into a greased pie pan, piling up on the sides. 

Bake for 40 minutes.
It ends up tasting like a nut-filled, baked meringue!
Let cool.  Top with at least two cups of sliced peaches. 

Add whipped cream or ice cream as you please.  We made Cointreau whipped cream - yum!

Enjoy!!
