Our Dessert on Saturday Night

         This is what we all had for our dessert Saturday night at the sewing retreat! Its German Pecan Pie and it was delicious. Just looking at it makes me want another piece! I still have more pictures to share of our fun projects, but it is late and I am packing to go on a little trip with my husband tomorrow ~ Yeah! 

Here is the recipe for all of you to try: 

German Pecan Pie

4 egg whites beaten                                  1 t. vanilla
1 C sugar                                                       24 Ritz crackers
1 C. pecans chopped                                
Baker’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate Squares      

Put crackers in a zip locked bag and roll with rolling pin until you have an even fine grind.  Beat egg whites until stiff then slowly add sugar and beat until blended.  Stir in crackers, vanilla and pecans.  Pour into greased 9 inch pie plate.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool 1 ½ to 2 hours. Cover with Cool Whip and shred chocolate on top.  Refrigerate.


  1. Ooooh, I'm so glad you posted this. Because... I KNOW how good it is and now I can make it, too! Mwaahahahahaa!

  2. Lorene--you must mention the shopping in Mineola. The girls were very happy with their earrings and the garden items from the Lost Creek store. We saw our first hummingbird yesterday at the feeder.

  3. Indeed! I have not hung up my hummingbird feeder as I am going to take it to the mountains in July. YES, there are lots of neat little shops in Mineola!
