Divinity Nut Pie

3 egg whites
1 cup sugar
1 cup chopped nuts
23 Ritz crackers
1 teaspoon vanilla

Topping

1/2 pint whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon powdered cocoa
3 tablespoons sugar

Beat egg whites and slowly add sugar after egg white peaks are stiff. Fold in chopped nuts. Take Ritz crackers and roll into crumbs. Add to mixture vanilla. Put this into a buttered pie plate and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Let cool. Then take whipping cream and add sugar slowly as you whip. Be careful not to whip the cream to butter. Fold in the cocoa powder. Then place in the cool pie crust. Let chill about an hour in refrigerator.

This first pie recipe is in Honor of my sister-in-law, Jo Murphrey. She is with Jesus now but on Christmas Day when we went to her house to celebrate, this was her special pie. After the awesome turkey, dressing, ham, fresh cream corn, green butter beans and don’t forget the fresh yeast rolls. There were many other dishes for the little ones liking. After the meal we all ask where is the Divinity Nut Pie. Of course she had lemon ice box pie, strawberry pie, pink lemonade pie, and chocolate cream pie. I truly miss those days at her house and the opening of presents prior to the amazing meal. You will enjoy this pie for sure.
