Soda Cracker Pie

I've been making this pie for years and my family expects at least two of these for Thanksgiving and Christmas dessert. My original recipe called for pecans or walnuts but I use chopped macadamia nuts and call it Macadamia Nut Pie. Its the easiest pie I've ever made and a nice contrast to all the heavy pumpkin and pecan pies during the holidays. My recipe is slightly different: 3 egg whites whipped stiff as if for meringue, slowly add 1 cup sugar, 1 tsp vanilla bean paste (or extract), then add 11 finely crushed soda cracker squares with 1 tsp baking powder, stir in 1 cup chopped macadamia nuts. Pour into ungreased 9" pie dish. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Maybe my version is for high altitude? This must be served with whipped cream or it will be dry. Enjoy!
