Ritz Cracker Pie

Ritz Cracker Pie - Cookie Madness

It’s one of my go-to recipes when I don’t have too much time to bake. So easy to make, such a great taste, not too heavy and chewy, just the way I like it. A quick pie, not made to impress anything else than the taste buds.

3 Egg Whites
1 cup Peacans, fincely chopped
1 cup Sugar
2 tsp Vanilla Essence
22-26 Ritz Crackers crumbled *
1/2 tsp Baking Powder

Unsweetened Cocoa or grated chocolate
Pinch of salt
A little bit of Love

I have to live a gluten-free lifestyle now and I use either gluten-free entertainment crackers or make my own Ritz Crackers

  1. This is so fun for me to read! The recipe is very close to a pie my grandmother would make when I was a child. I’ve thought of it from time to time, but basically forgotten about it! I must make this soon. I’ve been in a very nostalgic mood lately! πŸ˜‰

    • I have been in a nostalgic mood myself. I assume the season, is the reason. πŸ™‚

      I am not a big pie eater, never got really used to the pie concept, but missed the tortes and cakes I had been growing up with. The Ritz Cracker pie is one of my favorites because it’s easy, cheap and surprisingly light.

  2. I’ve heard of this pie…wasn’t it invented during wartime because there was a lack of more typical pie ingredients? Anyway, I’d never seen a recipe for it before. Very interesting. I just don’t know though, my family is pretty picky about their pie…I need to taste it I guess, just to see…it seems weird to me, but I believe you if you say it’s good!

    • I would NEVER ever have tasted it, if I would have known about the ingredients. It was on a buffet and when everybody raved over it, I had a piece myself. It tastes nutty, not overly sweet, very much on the light side, which is perfect for me, because I DO NOT EAT PIES. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
