Re-published Ritz Cracker Pie

It's Bill's birthday tomorrow. I asked him what kind of pie he wanted for his birthday.
We talked through the options.
Would it be chocolate ice box pie?
Cherry pie?
Nope, it needed to be Ritz Cracker Pie.

We ran into Tom Thumb to get a few things we needed.

Ritz Cracker Pie

21 crushed Ritz Crackers
3 egg whites (old eggs meringue better than new)
1 cup of sugar
1tsp. baking powder
1tsp. vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. 
Grease 9 inch pie plate

Separate eggs.
 Beat egg whites until stiff. 
Slowly add sugar, baking powder and vanilla. 
Fold in Ritz Crackers and Pecans. 
Pour into pie pan and bake for 25 minutes. 


Cool for 24 hours. We only have 4 hours but it will be delicious anyway.
Cover with whipped cream and sprinkle with grated chocolate.

It's yummy.

This pie is a little sweet and a little salty. It's crunchy and chewy. 
Do you know how to separate an egg?
Crack the egg. 

Hold the egg upright and pull off the top half.

Carefully transfer the egg to the other half.

Transfer the egg back and forth until most of the egg white has dripped into the mixing bowl.
This is almost a no fail method after some practice.

We're also having chicken fajitas. I need to get after it if that is going to happen. 
I hope you have a wonderful weekend. 
Special birthday wishes to my sweet husband.

  1. I used to make a Ritz cracker pie many years ago when I was a young mother with two little kids and not a lot of time or money. It wasn't the same as yours - no egg whites and no nuts. It was rather dense but the butter, sugar and spices made it taste just like apple pie and we ate it with vanilla ice cream on top - in fact the recipe was titled Mock Apple pie. Wish I still had the recipe, but it's long gone. Your version looks really good too.

  2. That looks super, super wonderful!

  3. Happy Birthday to your hubby! I have never had a Ritz Cracker Pie, but would love to try it!

  4. Looks great. I too remember the other version of Ritz apple pie called Mock Apple pie in the above comment. I don't eat refined sugar so I will be trying your version with Coconut palm sugar to replace the refined sugar. Looks so yummy- thanks.

  5. Oh, Katie! I hope your husband had a wonderful birthday and this recipe for Ritz Cracker Pie sounds like a childhood favorite... <3 I am seriously going to bake this as yes, I have some slightly older eggs!!! Happy to share this at Share Your Style #214 this week, thank you!

    Happy summer and thank you for a lovely recipe,
    Barb :)

  6. My mother made this when I was a kid. As a topping she mixed cool whip and Nestle quick powder together to dollop on top.

  7. I’m going to make this pie soon, it reminds me of a pie that Piccadilly Restaurant had years ago. My daughter loved it!
